You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #276

- 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 know, it's a Christmas book! Sophie Kinsella has a new entry - Christmas Shopaholic - in the Shopaholic series releasing in October on both sides of the pond. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. There's no mistaking that its a Christmas book with the presents featured on both covers.  Both colour schemes are holiday oriented. I do find the US colors a bit muddy and dull though. I much prefer the brights used on the UK cover. The white background makes the colors pop as well. I quite like the tree made from presents as well. The UK cover lets you know it's part of a series and includes a tag line. I feel the UK cover conveys the 'too much' conundrum that Becky Bloomfield invariably finds herself in. An easy choice for me this week - UK. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? 
Any plans to read Christmas Shopaholic?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I don't love the white background on the UK cover so I'm going with the US cover this week.

UK cover has a cute whimsical drawing, by comparison I find the US cover very UK wins it for me.
I’m definitely not a shopaholic (except when it comes to books LOL) interest in reading about women obsessed with clothes & shopping, so not a series I would read.

UK takes it this week!

I like the US cover better.
