It’s time again for the Friday Face-Off meme, created by Books by Proxy, with weekly topics hosted by Lynn’s Book Blog. The idea is to put up different covers for one book, and select a favorite.
This week’s theme is: Tunnel – ‘At the end of every light, is a tunnel of darkness.’
So I totally failed to think of any book with an actual tunnel on the cover…so I decided to play with the light and dark idea instead. And I thought of the Wayward Children series that I’ve been reading recently and loving. Because they’re recent books with only one cover each, I’m going to further stretch things and put up covers from the whole series. And they kind of have a tunnel-ish look to them…
I’m torn when it comes to choosing a favorite! I really like #3 and #4, both quite magical and intriguing, and I like #6 a lot too. #6 looks like a book I’d really like to read, but it doesn’t look like it’s necessarily a magical book about travel between worlds. I really like the way #4 uses lighting to suggest magic around a door in a tree (and it’s also totally accurate to what happens in the book, which I always appreciate). I’m going to ultimately give the edge to #3 though – the bright colors are both appealing and just a touch weird (in a good way) and I like how the door is actually cut out of the sky – very visually interesting.
Also, the series is AMAZING. I’ve really got to get on top of reviewing… 🙂
Can you think of any books with tunnels on the cover? Or rave about the Wayward Children series, that kind of comment is welcome too!

The Ballantine paperback edition of Robert Heinlein’s Tunnel in the Sky depicts some guys holding knives as they emerge from a tunnel.
I haven’t read the series, but the covers of #1 and #6 appeal to me the most. I’m a sucker for trees, forest scenes, and greenery. 🙂
