- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
Scottish author Val McDermid is one of my all time favourite crime writers. Her latest book is Out of Bounds - already released in the UK and set for December in North America. Hmm, another ominous picture of a woman on the US cover. I'm sure it's her ponytail on her shoulder, but it looks a bit odd to me. Red lettering, a strong font and that misty background seem to promise a good mystery. But I am more attracted to the subtler UK cover this week. It's not as overt as the US cover, but that open gate and broken lock work with the title and make me wonder what's beyond the gate. So, UK cover for me this week. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Out of Bounds? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.
