You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover # 211

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 cover
House swapping. It's done all the time, But what if...."It seems the person they have swapped with is someone she used to know; someone she’s desperate to leave in her past. I like the premise. Now, about the covers... The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both are somewhat muted in tone. A window in one, two doors on the other. Fairly similar font look for the title. Same tagline on both. So, it's hard to escape these days - there is indeed a woman peeking through the curtains on the US cover. I'm going with the UK cover this week. I like the white vs. black doors and the opposite font colour on each door. I like the mystery of what's behind each door, instead of the woman's face. Overall I think it has a more ominous feel and I would be likely to pick it up to have a look inside. What about you? And plans to read The House Swap? Which cover do you prefer this week?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I do plan to read this one and I like the UK cover better as well. As to actual house swapping - nope, not for me. We have rented vacation homes on trips, but I'd never swap with someone in my 'main' home. Think of how many things you'd have to store or put away. LOL

I prefer the US cover. Read this book and really liked it!

Kay - I admit, I don't think I could 'swap' either. I just wouldn't want unknown people in my space. I think it will be a good read though.

Diana - I can't wait to start it - so glad to hear it's good!
