You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #134

- 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
You see the pattern don't you - I love suspense and thrillers. What caught my eye was a blurb by one of my fave authors - Harlan Coben. And the catchphrase 'Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes?' Well, now I need to know! So, the US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The first thing I noticed is that the US has eyes open and the UK is eyes closed. Snippet of a woman's face on the US, more on the UK. And colour and lack of. The UK cover is a little more lurid than the US, but in terms of picking either up to read more on the flyleaf, I would be more inclined to pick up the UK cover - my choice this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Behind Her Eyes? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. ?

I agree that the UK cover pops a little more. But I can't shake those eye's in the US version. There's definitely more mystery there!

Dislike eyeballs on the covers of books i read. Too creepy for me - LOL
If I couldn't get the UK copy, then i would pass on this until the publisher issued a reprint with a new cover - crazy - but that's me :)
