You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another.
I am fan of Ruth Ware and am looking forward to her forthcoming novel, The Death of Mrs. Westaway, releasing the end of May in NA and the end of June in the UK. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The first thing I notice is black and white vs a colour cover. The images are also very different, subtle vs. a somewhat overt image - mysterious old mansion. And a lone figure walking into danger. And if you were still unsure, the tagline spells it out for you. Easy choice for me this week - US. I like the black and white and the more restrained image. The 'danger' is still there in the spider web, the iron gate and the ravens. And the title speaks for itself. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Death of Mrs. Westaway?
