- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
I always enjoy Laura Lippman's books, especially the Tess Monoghan series. Her latest book, a stand-alone titled Sunburn, releases in February on both sides of the pond. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. And the words 'psychological suspense' have landed it on my TBR pile. So, 'hot' seems to be a focus on both covers - sunglasses on the US cover and a beach setting on the UK cover. But the blue on the US cover seems oddly barren. Is it just supposed to be the sky? I tried to make out what was reflected in the sunglasses but couldn't make it out. I am not a fan of a face provided for a character. I much prefer to draw my own mental images. The UK cover features a tag line that gives you an idea of the story within. And Lee Child has left a nice blurb. I just like the overall look of the UK cover this week. What about you? Any plans to read Sunburn? Which cover do you prefer?
