Friday Face Off: Unicorn

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

“I thought unicorns were more . . . Fluffy.”

This weeks theme:  A cover featuring a unicorn

Wow this is a tough one! From the books I have read, the only cover I could find with a unicorn was “Not Quite Narwhal” and the only other book I can think of that had Unicorns in it was Harry Potter.  I must have read other books with unicorns in them?

My Choice: Stardust

I have been meaning to read this book forever! I loved the movie, and I have heard the book is even better, though more dark and more adult.

I found a Stardust cover with a unicorn, a cover with a unicorn horn, and a cover that might be a unicorn but could also be a horse, I can’t tell.

There were over 200 different editions on Goodreads, so I didn’t display the boring or super weird ones.

Least Favorites:


I like the artwork style of the one on the left but the person thing coming out of her hand is kind of creepy and I can’t tell what is going on.  The other two are kind of boring.




Weirdly enough only 1 of my 6 favorites is in English.

  • William Morrow and Company – English
  • NXB Lao Động – Vietnamese
  • Arnoldo Mondadori Editore – Italian
  • ACT – Russian
  • Tiritamm – Estonian
  • Rocco – Portuguese



Its a tie! I love both of these covers!

Also, here is a picture of the cover I own (which I love but not as much as the Estonian ship cover!)


And my cats, who have to be involved in all my picture taking!


Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Do you have pets that like to be in the middle of everything? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. Oh my word – WHAT a lot of covers! And what a variety… I very much like your favourites – but I love the middle cover on the top row by Words Wonder 2014 – that pale lilac cover is beautiful…

    1. I’ve heard such good things about it! And I loved the movie ❤ Thanks 🙂 I love my cats haha … and they don't actually care about the picture taking they just like to be in the middle of everything 😂😂


  2. I like the Words Wonder edition, as well as the William Morrow 2009 and the Vertigo ’99 covers.

    I always love what Vess does with these kinds of stories, art- wise.
