You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #145

- 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 enjoyed British author Paula Daly's previous books. Her latest, The Trophy Child, is on my ever teetering TBR pile. "A thrilling tale of ambition and murder, Daly’s richly imagined world of suburban striving and motherly love is an absorbing page-turner about the illusions of perfection and the power games between husband and wife, parent and child." The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two very different looks this week. Just on first look the US cover appeals to me more. The US's overgrown hedges and the gate and fence underline the 'what happens behind closed door' part of the plot. The colours on the UK cover don't appeal to me at all. But the image of a child studying is part of the plot as well. So, any plans to read The Trophy Child? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

Yes, I am planning to read this book. And for me, the UK cover. I don't really like the yellow on the US cover. Can't wait to read this!

The book sounds great! I like both covers but think I prefer the US cover.
