- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
Megan Goldin's book, The Escape Room, has already released in Australia and comes out in August in Canada and the US. The Canadian cover is on the left and the Australian cover is on the right. Okay, cover blurbs by two authors I really enjoy would have have me picking up either book to have a look inside. And the premise looks really, really good. I am more immediately drawn the colour of the Canadian cover. I wonder if the gold colour is a nod to the author's last name? I like the sliver of a person (okay it's a woman) peaking out over the full face of the Aussie cover. The cityscape suits the story, but I find the Australian cover too dark. So Canadian cover for me this week. Any plans to read The Escape Room? Which cover do you prefer?
