Friday Face Off: Movie Tie In

Friday Face Off is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, and run by Lynn’s Book Blog. You can check out all my past Friday Face Offs here.

“Everything I learned I learned from the movies.”

This weeks theme:  A cover that is a movie tie in.

My Choice: One For The Money

This week was hard just because there were so many I could choose from!



Griffin 2006 | Simon and Schuster 1999 | Scribner 1999 | Scribner 2019


Penguin 1996 | Penguin 1995 | TEA 2008 | Pocket 2004


Word Factory 2012 | WSOY 2008 | Porch of the Universe 2008 | Ulpius house 2008


Pocket 2012 | Pocket 2013 | Edging 2017 | Crown Culture Publishing 2010

I’m surprised how many covers there are for this! I only picked the ones that stood out to me, which was less than half of the total covers!

Least Favorites:


The only reason I don’t like the middle one is because it looks like the gun is pointed at her head.





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

  1. Because I have read this whole series, I have an idea of what Stephanie looks like based on descriptions in the book. She is Italian, in New Jersey with Big Hair. She is also pretty, clutzy and always having a rough time. I agree that of all the ones with pictures of her on the cover your choice is the best, but I think I prefer one without the illustration like the Scribner 1999 one.

    1. I think I read the first 8 or so? Didn’t she also have red hair? I remember being surprised and disappointed with their casting choice even though I love Katherine Heigl. I am kind of surprised that none of the covers did a better job of drawing her! The only reason I didn’t like the Scribner 1999 one was because it looks too much like a standard mystery and since I am not a huge fan of mysteries, I probably wouldn’t have read this series if that was the cover I had seen.

  2. Wow, I had no idea this book had so many different covers. The one you picked is my favorite too because I love the cartoon drawing of Stephanie Plum. I also kind of liked the 1995 Penguin. I can’t decide if it really ties in well with the book but it looks cool, lol.
