You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #244

- 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
Canadian cover
I keep hearing about The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton and it is most definitely on my TBR list. I ended up finding four (!) covers to choose from this week. The US cover is on the top left and the Canadian cover on the top right. I am more immediately drawn to the plane interior image. There's a what I assume is a female flight attendant, given the premise of the story. "She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him. I find the Canadian cover a bit bland. The cover blurbs are from authors I enjoy, so that alone would have me picking it to peek inside. But the white blouse and half face shot is just meh for me. An easy choice for me this week - US cover. What about you? Any plans to read The Perfect Girlfriend? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World

I'm not crazy about either cover but think I prefer the Canadian one. The figure in the back of the plane on the US cover looks cartoonish (for lack of a better word) to me.

I like the US cover better or at least think that it might be in keeping with the story. However, I'm not terribly excited about either of them. I've been on the fence about trying this one. I'll maybe wait and see what you think. Ha!

I am leaning toward the US cover as well. The plane seems so stifling, I bet it fits in with the story more than the run of the mill partial person cover!

Hmm, it does, doesn't it Bermudaonion?

Kay, the plane does tie in with the story.....and I just finished reading it - and it was darn good.

Holdenj - the plane is indeed a much better fit for the story.
