You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #190

- 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
It was the tagline of Jane Harper's forthcoming book - Force of Nature -  that first caught my attention. " Five women go on a hike. Only four return. Jane Harper, the New York Times bestselling author of The Dry, asks: How well do you really know the people you work with?" The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both covers have dark, ominous, stormy covers. The landscape below is quite different on each cover. Fields of what looks like wheat on the UK cover, while the US cover has a dense forested area depicted. The mist also gives the scene a unknown, perhaps dangerous aura. I also prefer the font on the US cover. So, initial creation - I would pick up the US book first. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Force of Nature? 
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think I like the ominous nature of the UK cover more.
