You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #96

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

Canadian/US cover
UK cover
I am sooooo looking forward this final book in Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy. The City of Mirrors releases in May in North America and mid June in the UK. The Canadian/US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Each country's trilogies have had their own style and these latest covers reflect that. I'm going with the Canadian/US cover this week - it reflects the series for me, I like the colour -the first book was blue, the second red - and the gold just seems right for the final book. I can't wait to see what and where this city is. The UK's previous covers have featured a picture of this same girl, who is the main focus. But, I like to imagine what a character looks like myself, without having a picture put in front of me. And, add to that I'm sick of girls on covers. What about you? Will you be reading The City of Mirrors? Which cover do you prefer? 
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I prefer the Canadian/US cover too. I haven't read any of the series so I doubt I'll read this book.

I'm voting for the Canadian/US cover as well. And no, I haven't read any of the previous books, but I've certainly heard about them. Maybe after this last in the trilogy is published, I'll give them a try.
