You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover # 230

- 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
Squee! Can I tell you how much I adore Flavia DeLuce!? Alan Bradley's newest Flavia mystery- The Golden Tresses of the Dead - will arrive in January 2019 on both sides of the pond - and I can't wait to read it! The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both feature red, but with differing tones. We've got a train on both covers. A wedding on the US cover, but there is a church in the background as well on the UK cover. I admit, it's an easy choice for me this week. I find the UK cover a little too busy for my taste. I own all of the previous books and the US cover continues the 'look' of past covers. So US for me this week. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Golden Tresses of the Dead?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

Like you, I'm used to the look of the US cover, so I'm going with it.

The US cover definitely for me. It matches the others. Ha!

Easy peasy this week - and it's one I will be buying!
