- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
Mark Billingham pens a favourite series of mine - the DI Tom Thorne novels. The 16th in the series is Their Little Secret -already released across the pond and out in June in North America. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The US cover follows a style used in the last few books with the title and author's name on a zig zag angle. The two figures could possibly be Thorne and his sidekick Nicola Tanner. And I'm guessing that's a hopscotch game. but looking at the book's descriptor I'm not sure how that's going to figure in. The UK image of an open window with curtains gently blowing seems like an image I've seen before. Which side is the danger on? In or out? I'm not a fan of the zig zag (and it kind of blends all the titles together with that look. Although it's branding I guess.) Neither are really stand outs for me this week, but I'm going to go with the UK cover. What about you? And plans to read Their Little Secret? Which cover do you prefer?
