You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #252

- 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
UK cover
I'm really looking forward to Hannah Jameson's debut novel
The Last. "One Hotel. Twenty Survivors. One of them is a murderer." Ticks all the boxes for me. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The title font size and colour is almost the same on both. Two very different background colours. That red is eye catching for sure. But I like the blues and purples of the US sky image. But what wins it for me this week is the US picture. I love isolated crumbly mansions. Add murder. Even better. Add an apocalyptic event. Delicious. I had to look twice at the UK image. It's a hotel as well, but just doesn't draw me in as much. What about you? Any plans to read The Last? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

The US cover appeals to me, too. The UK cover makes the book look frivolous.

I like the more 'real' look of the US cover, plus the colors suit me better. The UK cover looks more like a graphic novel. And, yes, I'm planning on trying this one.

Yes, I think we all agree - the US is def more appealing!
