Friday Face-Off

Friday Face Off: Queen

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

“Mirror, Mirror on the wall.”

This weeks theme: A cover featuring a queen

My Choice: Spinning Silver

I have read a lot of books with Princesses on the covers but not so many with Queens.

I know Miryem doesn’t look like a queen on the cover of Spinning Silver, but she does marry the Ice King pretty early in the book, and I think it counts!!


Del Rey | Macmillan | Penguin

The Macmillan cover looks a little weird with the white border so I looked it up and it looks a lot better as an actual book:

The Del Ray and the Penguin covers are almost identical.  The Penguin is a little lighter and there is a gold bar behind the “S” in Spinning.  I think I like the Penguin Cover a little bit better.  But overall the Macmillan is easily my favorite of the three!



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

  1. Yes! I like the Macmillan cover too but I have to say the Penguin one is better than the Del Rey and it resembles closely with the first novel Uprooted. I didn’t like Uprooted, unfortunately. Have a great day!
