You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #151

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
 But you can like one cover version better than another....

UK cover
US cover
John Grisham has two new books coming out in 2017. The first is Camino Island, releasing on June 6th on both sides of the pond. At the heart of the plot - a literary heist. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The US cover has the author's name and title in the same font and size while the UK cover has a larger and brighter font for the  author's name. The title is smaller, but there's a tag line giving you a bit more to go on. The US cover's picture could be about anything, while the UK cover is a bit more 'dangerous'.  So, I'm going to go with the UK cover this week. Which cover do you prefer? Will you be reading Camino Island?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

Thank goodness his name sells! He certainly cannot depend on whoever designs his covers.

I like the ominous look of the UK cover but think I prefer the US cover overall.
