You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #316

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
I enjoyed Kevin Kwan's runaway bestseller Crazy Rich Asians. And the movie was lots of fun as well. He's got a new book coming out the end of this month - Sex and Vanity. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. At first glance they could be the same cover. The author's name is in white on both covers with 
two fonts that are very similar. The title font on the US cover is a bit flashier and seems to match the title (and premise) better than the stark UK title font. The pool is pretty close on both covers, although the UK provides umbrellas. Day vs night? The cityscape is again close, but not an exact match. I do like it split on the US cover - it seems to frame the building and pool.  And well, I really like the color of those pink lit trees. Fushia? That and the night scene seal the deal for me this week - US cover. What about you?
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Sex and Vanity?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I prefer the trees by the pool + the trees on other rooftops, on the US ‘night’ cover over the lame palms on the UK ‘day’ cover. The night scene also appeals to me more than the day. And finally the script on the US cover catches my eye much more than the print of the UK cover. So US wins!

Ha Icewineanne - Lame palms captures it!

US takes it this week!
