You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #141

- 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
It was the cover blurb by Clare Mackintosh that had 
me taking a second look at The Good Daughter by  Alexandra Burt. Suspense! The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two very different looks this week. The US cover gives off that 'something hidden beneath the water' vibe. But I'm not a fan of the blue and white. The UK cover could be taken either way - innocent or ominous. The tagline on the top lets us know for sure. So which cover do you prefer? I'm going with the UK cover this week. Any plans to read The Good Daughter? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think I like the UK cover better too.

I think the UK cover. Like you, the blue and white are not very something. I don't like the yellow words on the UK cover though. The black and white is interesting, but I would have picked a different color for the words - red maybe?

I've requested this from Netgalley as I think the story is good. I like the UK cover too.

Oddly i actually prefer the US/Cdn cover this week. UK reminds me too much of those silly scary doll/baby horror movies. Love the wintry looking trees even if they're not scary.
Looking forward to your review Luanne, happy reading :D
