You can't judge a book by it's cover - which is very true ...
But you can like one cover version better than another
I'm looking forward to Linwood Barclay's forthcoming book, Find You First. The US cover is on the left and the Australian cover is on the right. It's a stand alone suspense novel. So...both covers do convey that sense of danger. Let's start with the Australian cover. I really like the bold pink colour. The yellow raincoat pops as well. Looking closer at the picture, those are street lights on the left side and there are some buildings on the right. And have you seen this look before? 'Young woman in trouble, running from something, looking back over her shoulder'? Uh huh, me too. Now on to the US cover. The colour used for the font transmits that danger element. And the silver for the author name pops as well. It is the image I really like. That single eye looking back in the rear view mirror at a behind is very effective. So, an easy choice for me this week - the US cover. What about you? Any plans to read Find You First? Which cover do you prefer?
