Friday Face-Off: Under the Sea

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but up-kept by Lynn’s Book Blog.

The seaweed is always greener, in somebody else’s lake.

This weeks theme: A cover featuring Under the Sea

My Choice: Island of the Blue Dolphins


Top to Bottom, left to right:

Cover 1: I like the dolphins but the girl looks kind of dead

Cover 2: I like the art but the dolphins are really tiny and hard to see.

Cover 3: I like the Dolphins, I don’t like the girl

Cover 4: I like the colors, I don’t like the art

Cover 5: Why is the girl part of the island?

Cover 6: No Dolphins and I don’t like the lines on the girls face

Cover 7: This is the cover I read as a kid.  I like it but the cliff is too prominent

Cover 8: Super old looking and no dolphins

Cover 9: I like the colors and picture but don’t like the word font

Cover 10: Super old and weird looking

Cover 11: I love the art and the font but no dolphins.

Cover 12: Great colors and I like the picture but you have to look really closely to figure out what is going on.

2nd Place:

Island 03

I love the picture and the font and it has dolphins, even though they are tiny.


Island 06

I really really like the art and the font and it all goes so well together! I debated if this could be the best because there are no dolphins on the cover, but in the end it still won as my favorite.

Which cover do you like best? Let me know in the comments! What book would you choose for this meme?
