SciFiMonth – Friday Face Off: Explosion

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.

November is SciFiMonth! SciFiMonth is 30 days of sharing your enthusiasm for all things science fictional hosted by There’s Always Room For One More and Dear Geek Place


“big badda boom.

This weeks theme:  A cover that features an explosion.

My Choice: A Killing Frost (A.K.A. The Third Day, The Frost)

It might be a bit of a stretch to call this a SciFi book, but the first book in the series is a pretty solid Dystopia / SciFi.



Scholastic 2006 | Pan 1996 | Pan 2010 | Pan 2008

Quercus 2012 | Pan 1995 | Houghton Mifflin | Pan 2012

Publishing house 2011 | Molino 2012 | Founding 2009 | Bonnier 2000

Macmillan 1998 | Carlsen 2003 | Pan 1997 | Yuanliu 2011

Least Favorites:




This cover doesn’t do a great job of portraying what the book is about, but if you read the first two in the series then you already know.  And I just really like the art style for some reason!

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

  1. Ok so I like a few of these. I like the Houghton Mifflin one a bit, with the helicopter thing going on, and I really like the Bonnier 2000- there’s a lot of action in that one. That’s probably my fave. 🙂

  2. What an amazing selection of covers – what strikes me is how DIFFERENT they are, given they are all of the same book… The first cover just edges it for me, though I also very much like the Macmillan 1998, which has a retro vibe going on there. This week’s theme certainly has thrown up some fascinating books!
