You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #196

- 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 am a big Jenny Colgan fan, having enjoyed every fun, fluffy, rom-com she's written. They're wonderful escapist reads. The Endless Beach is her latest - already released in the UK and coming in May to North America. (and is most definitely on my TBR list) The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two very different looks this week. The US cover features a 'reality' shot of an English beach. I love the whitewashed buildings and the blue of the water. But for some reason, if I didn't know what Jenny Colgan writes, I would have thought this was perhaps a historical novel. The font is quite serious as well. The UK cover just says fun to me. I like the drawn image of the beach. The fonts uses are also more engaging. And there's a nice cover blurb from Sophie Kinsella that would give potential readers another clue as to the content. So, an easy choice for me this week - UK. What about you? Any plans to read The Endless Beach? Which cover do you prefer?
 You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think I like the US cover better, but I agree that the UK cover hints at a more 'beachy' read.

Given the synopsis, I think the UK cover wins this week. The US cover is beautiful, but it hints at a completely different kind of novel!

Hmm, mixed thoughts this week. No matter the cover, it will be fun read!
