You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover # 232

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true. 
But you can like one cover version better than another....

The Strange Diaries
UK cover
I can't get enough of Elly Griffith's Ruth Galloway series. Her
forthcoming book, The Stranger Diaries,  is a stand alone and I can't wait to read it....."A gripping contemporary Gothic thriller..." The US cover is  on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two very different looks this week. I'm a sucker for old houses on covers. I like the image on the US cover and the line that cuts through the title, image and author's name is very effective. The tagline on the UK cover - death lies between the lines - seems to fit that image. But on looking closer at the UK cover, there are lines of handwriting in the background. Not sure about the plants. Poisonous perhaps? The dark blue is quite striking. But my fondness for Gothic reads and creepy houses has me voting for the US cover this week. How about you? Any plans to read The Stranger Diaries? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I actually like both covers this week and I think I prefer the UK cover.
