You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #184

- 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
Clare Mackintosh has a new book coming - Let Me Lie releases in March 2018 on both sides of the pond. And yes, it's on my ever growing TBR list! The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Okay, so we have blue tones in both covers. At first glance of the US cover, I thought the woman was on a snow covered glacier until I realized the water below wasn't frozen and it looks a little tropical with the green? Ominous clouds though and the large red font suggest danger. But, the UK cover leaves no doubt the the read inside will be a thriller. The tagline is mysterious - not suicide, not murder, well what could it be? The broken glass and window suggest danger. I'm going with the UK cover this week. I can't get past the tiny person on top of the maybe glacier. What about you? Any plans to read Let Me Lie? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I didn't even notice the person on the US cover until you pointed her out. I prefer the UK cover too.
