You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #270

- 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
Rene Denfeld's book The Child Finder, was a runaway success.
I loved it and have been watching for the next book to feature Naomi Cottle. The Butterfly Girl releases in October 2019. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. I like the muted colour on the US cover - the tones give it an ethereal feel. The butterflies give it movement. And the hands - are the butterflies landing or being sent on their way? I am also drawn to the starker colours of the UK cover. The strong red butterfly image at the top fades and the outline seems to get less sharp with the green image. And the last brown butterfly has tears and seems to be drying up and dying. Oh, this is going to be a tough choice this week. While I like both covers, I think the UK cover is closer to what's inside. So, UK for me this week. What about you? 
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Butterfly Girl?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World

Wow! No contest for me, UK wins it with the dramatic black background & fading butterfly. Like the moths flitting about on the US cover, but not crazy about the image of the hands.
Never read Child Finder, perhaps I should think about reading it.

The Child Finder is pretty good Icewineanne - this upcoming book features the same character.
