You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #275

- 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
A new Virgil Flowers book - Bloody Genius - from John Sandford releases in October on both sides of the pond. This one time supporting character in the Lucas Davenport series has many fans. (including me) The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Well, the US cover does say bloody, doesn't it. The UK cover brings in red with the title font. The US cover has words in the forefront, while the UK cover has the image of a clock tower taking a good piece of the cover. A similar clock tower is on the US cover as well. There's more the images, but its hard to see.  Stephen King gives a nice blurb to Sandford on the UK cover. Busy vs. somewhat understated. Hmm, a hard choice for me this week....but I'm going to go with the in your face US cover this week. What about you? 
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Bloody Genius?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I'm not crazy about either one but the US cover is a little busy for me so I pick the UK cover.
