You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #94

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
 But you can like one cover version better than another....

US cover
UK/Canadian cover
Crime writer Sharon Bolton is an author who is on my radar, but I haven't had a chance to try yet. Her next book, Daisy in Chains is due out in June in the UK and September in the US. The US cover is on the left and the UK/Canadian cover is on the right.  Hmm, so the flowers are crushed and dying on the US cover, but there's really nothing to say it's a crime book - it could be about a bad gardener? The flowers in the UK version are a little healthier looking, except for those blood streaked stems. And the streak across the stems is quite ominous. As a crime fiction lover, the UK cover would catch my interest over the US cover. So, have your read Sharon Bolton? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

It's a toss up for me this week - I like both of the covers.

I do like both covers but UK/Canada wins it out for me. The 'he loves her he loves her not'......love that with the bloody stems and streak.

I have her on my list to read this year, Little Black Lies.

At first glance, I liked the U.S. cover. But after looking more closely at them, the UK-Canada book won. I love the streak of blood and "he loves her, he loves her not".

Oh, and no, I've never read this author, but am adding this to my list.

I like the US cover better for this one.
