- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
If you've not read Alex Marwood before, you're missing out on some great psychological suspense. Her newest, The Poison Garden releases in July of this year across but not 'til January 2020 in North America. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Well, with garden in the title, you would expect to see plants/foliage on the cover. It looks to be a tree on the US cover. The colour palette used isn't a healthy tone at all. It suggest sickness. I'm not too sure about the knife image though. It just seems too big for the background. But.....I love the UK cover. The leaf images in black/grey tones is just perfect and connotes death and danger. The pop of yellow is just right too. An easy choice for me this week - UK. What about you? Which cover do you prefer?
Any plans to read The Poison Garden?
