You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another.
I was so excited to see that Emma Healey has a new book coming out. I really enjoyed her first book, Elizabeth is missing. Two very different looks this week for the forthcoming Whistle in the Dark. (And I love that title) The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The blue of the US cover is appealing. There are faces hidden in the wash of colour. The blue has movement, the font used is simple and suits the tone of the cover. The UK cover is busier. It too has movement with the birds in flight. I'm not a fan of the colours used though. But the tagline would definitely have me picking up the book. "How do you rescue someone who has already been found?" If the books were side by side on a bookstore table I would pick up the US version first. So, US for me this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Whistle in the dark?
