- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
I was perusing the coming soon lists and Tanen Jones' forthcoming book, The Better Liar, caught my eye. "When a woman conceals her sister’s death to claim their joint inheritance, her deception exposes a web of dangerous secrets in this addictive new thriller for fans of Megan Abbott, Gillian Flynn, and Paula Hawkins." Added to my TBR list. The US/Canadian cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The tone of both cover is dark and hints at a dark story. The UK cover gives you an idea of the plot with the tagline - two sisters - and the US cover image depicts that. But the eye of each sister is quite different. One seems decidedly devious while the other seems more innocent. Yellow roses signify feelings of joy and delight - not sure that's what going on here. Now to the UK cover, which is quite appealing to me. It's different and a change from the old 'woman's image on the cover.' Two beds, two lights, one phone. I like the fuchsia color and the yellow plays off it well. An easy choice for me this week - UK. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Better Liar?
