You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #280

- 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
Paul Daly is a British writer - her latest book is Clear My Name. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Well....two quite different presentations this week. The title font on the US cover does convey a bit of a darker tone. But, the image used? Boring and I've seen it too many times. Women on a cover. Now, the UK cover interest me more. I like the red font and how some of the letters are starting to blur. The choice of words at the top easily lets you know there's a mystery inside. And the subtle bars in the background adds to that feel. So, an easy choice for me this week - UK. What about you? 
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Clear My Name?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World

I agree, Luanne. UK cover for me. The women walking away has been used and used and used. I like the crossing out of words - in red no less. And I'll be trying this one. I've read other books by this author that I really liked.

Love the blurred jail cell bars on the UK cover as well as the red script.....UK for me.......US cover reminds me of a warm family/friend tale from the 70’s...LOL

Well, a clean sweep this week for the UK cover!
