You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #235

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

The Boy US
UK cover
Too many books and too little time.... I've read many of Tami Hoag's books, but haven't kept up with the last few. The Boy is her latest - releasing this December in NA and in February in the UK. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Well, the US cover is rather start. Author name, book title and a few strands of grass/weeds. Going for the stark look. Personally, I find it bland and yes, boring. So, the UK cover - I like the punch of yellow. And that wee bit of red that makes you look closer. Yes, it's a person - a boy I would say. I really like the tree images they've used as well. And as always, the tagline gives you an idea of what's inside. I'd be much more likely to pick this up. What about you? Which cover do you prefer?
 Any plans to read The Boy?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

It's no contest for me this week - the UK cover wins hands down.

I'm not crazy about either one. I've read a lot of this author's books, but it's been a while for me too. Maybe I'll get to this one. It's a standalone, right?

Two for the UK and a pass.

Kay it looks like it's the second book in the 'Broussard and Fourcade' series.

UK wins by a country mile ;)

Read one of her books decades ago. Can’t remember anything about it, Hah!
