You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #267

- 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
Oh, I'm looking forward to the next suspense novel from Shari Lapena! Someone We Know releases on both side of the pond at the end of July. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Dark tones on each cover. Androgynous person out at night in leafy suburb on the US cover.  And a neighbourhood shot on the UK cover as well, with a house instead of a person. And  a little earlier in the day. Yellow font on both, but flipped between title and author name. I find the blue author name on the US cover not as much of a standout. The UK cover does have a tagline that gives the reader a bit of a clue as the story awaiting. But...having read the premise of the book, I am going to go with the US cover this week. I like that dark street and the unknown person. But, either cover, it's going to be a good read. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Someone We Know?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think the title on the UK cover is too large so I vote for the US cover too.

I vote for the US cover too and, yes, I'm planning on reading this one. Can't wait!

The lettering on the US cover is much better, so it’s a winner for me. Looks like a super read to boot!

Well a sweep for the US cover this week. And yes - it's going to be a good read!!
