- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
I can't wait to read Tana French's latest novel, The Witch Elm. Or The Wych Elm, depending on what country you're in. The US cover is on the left and the UK is on the right. So, a tree is an integral part of the book. We get two different parts of the tree - the roots and the trunk on the US cover - and the trunk and branches on the UK cover. The colours used on each cover are very stark - blue on white and black and white. I find the UK cover's look to be quite dark, ominous and threatening. I do find I am drawn the image used on the US cover as well as the colours used. So, US for me this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Witch Elm or The Wych Elm?
