You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #260

- 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
A Good Enough Mother is the debut novel from Bev Thomas, releasing next week.  I've got this one added to my ever teetering TBR pile. (And be sure to tune in on Monday, April 29 as I'll be giving away a copy!)The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two quite different interpretations this week. Dark and light. Earth and water. The US cover is quite ominous with the black background and the blood read tulips. Tulips to me are a friendly flower, but they come across as threatening in this picture. I think it's the bent stems, looking like they're leaning over something. The UK cover also has a darker tone. The almost overflowing tub, the faucet still running and the skewed font that feels like everything is going down the drain. Paula Hawkins provides a nice blurb that would have me picking the book up to look inside. Both are good covers this week, but I am a little more partial to those tulips. So, US for me this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read A Good Enough Mother?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

Tulips for me, too!

Wow - that tub is filled up to the brim. Wondering how closely it relates to the story. Like the darker US cover, but again not sure how tulips would relate to story inside. Will pick US just based on colours.

The flowers take it for a US win this week.
