You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #123

- 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've read everything that Emma Donoghue has written - and loved them all. I knew she had a new book coming and placed my hold at the library without even reading the synopsis. I've just read it now and am even more eager to read her new book The Wonder. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two quite different covers this week. Both dark in tone. But I think that I prefer the US cover. That antique spoon just appeals to me and I wonder what the story behind it might be. The UK cover is quite fanciful with the gold. The title underneath the ground and a tree must have some significance as well to the story. Do you have any plans to read The Wonder? 
Which cover do you prefer? 
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think this one may be my first tie. I find them both pretty and intriguing. I have had my eye on this book and its reviews!

Not really taken up with either. These covers are not as bad as some that are around.

Love the graphics & colour of the UK cover :)
