You Can't Judge a Book By Its Cover #27

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
Canadian cover
US cover
I was hunting down cover art for this week's review of her Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. (Loved it! My review) and came across the Canadian cover on the left and the US cover on the right. I found it interesting
that it was only simple changes - font, font size and colour tone that changed between the two. But having read the book, I prefer the Canadian cover this week. I don't like the red curlicue font at all. And I thought the subtle colour tones captured Queenie's story better. Which cover do you prefer? Do you plan to read The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy? (Canadian peeps - it's out now. US peeps - it releases Feb.24/15)

You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular Saturday feature on A Bookworm's World.

I like the Canadian cover better too.

I prefer the US cover only because The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry has that same curly writing style. Since they are kind of companion books, I like that they match a bit.

I totally like the Canadian cover best. I often find this is the case. If you take a look at the English covers for Jojo Moyes you will see how lovely they are compared to the generic ones here in U.S.
