You Can’t Judge a Book By Its Cover #212

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
Elin Hilderbrand is always a good choice for beach bag reading. Her forthcoming book, The Perfect Couple, releases June 19 on both sides of the pond. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both covers have 'beachy' pictures - one on the sand and one on a dock or promenade.The word 'perfect' is italicized on both covers. The UK gives us a bit more with a cover tagline. But here's what always makes or breaks a cover for me. I want to form my own mental images of the characters based on the author's words. So and easy choice for me this week - US. I like the subtlety of the feet sticking out from under the umbrella rather that the definite images of two people. What about you? Any plans to read The Perfect Couple? Which cover do you prefer this week?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

The yellow umbrella cover looks more 'beachy' to me or more like beaches I'm familiar with. So, I pick that one this week. :-)

I agree about the characters. Don't show me what they look like, tell me!

Sorry to disappoint but I’m not a fan of either cover.

Kay - I agree - it's more a familiar beach image for me as well.

Ethan - well put!

Icewineanne - no disappointment - that's the fun of these comparasins!
