Friday Face-Off: Murder Scene

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

“Murder most foul, as in the best it is.”

This weeks theme: A cover featuring a murder scene.

My Choice: A Study in Scarlet

For Friday Face-Off: Smoke I chose The Complete Sherlock Holmes, so this one is similar but not the same!

Covers: 2005 | Penguin Classics 2001 | BBC Books 2012 | Penguin 2008
Penguin Books 2014 | Edimat Libros 2006 | Balzer + Bray 2015 | Mondadori 2004
Penguin 2011 | Wisehouse Classics 2016 | Classic Mysteries | Livre de Poche 1995
Global Notícias 2009 | Modern Library 2003 | Headline 2006 | ? 2011

There are 1,302 Editions of A Study In Scarlet on Goodreads.  I am sure a lot of those are duplicates but that is still a LOT of covers! I picked the firs 16 covers from Goodreads for today’s post because there is no way I could include all the covers!

Least Favorites:




Which one is your favorite? Do you agree with my pick? Let me know in the comments!

  1. What an excellent choice of book for this week’s theme – I also think my favourite is the Penguin Classic cover. Some of them do look a bit cartoonish, which isn’t remotely the right tone for Conan Doyle. Have a great weekend, Brittany:)

  2. Great choice! Lots to choose from this week. Weirdly enough, my eye was kind of drawn to one of your least favorites, the Penguin 2008. I don’t know if I like it, but it’s certainly eye catching. The murder victim’s face kind of freaks me out though, lol.

  3. Funnily enough I wondered about looking at some of the Sherlock covers for this theme. I love your choice although I would find it difficult to chose between both favourites as the blue cover is lovely too.

    1. I wondered if people would like that one! I know a lot of people hate movie covers but I know so many people LOVE that version of Sherlock so I wondered if that would influence anyone haha. I like that one too! 😀
