- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
I'm going to forgive JP Delaney for his last book. His newest novel - Playing Nice - comes out in July and looks pretty good. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So...both images are child related. The swing would be used by an older child, while the crib suggests much younger. The tagline on the UK cover gives you a definite idea about what you'll find inside. I'd be likely to pick up the UK book based on that. The red title font says suspense. The US cover is...nice. On first glance I might have thought women's fiction. And the tones used are...nice. Well, I'm going to go for the thrill this week and say UK cover for me. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Playing Nice?
