You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #292

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true. 
 But you can like one cover version better than another...

US/Canadian cover
UK cover
Elly Griffiths pens one of my favourite series - The Ruth Galloway mysteries. This twelfth entry releases in February across the pond and not until June in NA. I can't wait to read it! The US/Canadian cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both versions follow the look of previous versions. The UK cover seems to be set on the salt marshes - a setting oft used in the books. I love that little stone cottage with smoke form a fire. That one bright window could be ominous or welcoming. The UK cover seems to literally represent the title with a lantern and also set on the marshes. I know I've gone with US versions of previous titles as it's the 'look' I'm used to...but this week I'm going to go with the UK cover. I love lonely houses. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Lantern Men?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I've got to try this series. I'm with you - I prefer the UK cover.

I'll join in and agree that I like the UK cover best, but I like the font on the US cover. That one has too much blue for my liking. And, yes, I cannot wait for the book itself. We'll see if I can manage to hold off until the June release or if I 'must' get it in February. Ha!

This week I’m torn, I love both covers!
The blue of night & the waves making their way to the shore, love the terrific font used for both title & author’s the little skull inset on the US/Cdn cover.
The UK cover has a wonderful brooding, ominous sky with the picture of the salt marsh itself and the red lettering of the title is perfect.
Such a difficult choice......but the US/Cdn cover wins it by the finest of margins ;)

UK by a wee bit this week. But I think we all agree, it's going to be another great read!

Hard to choose on this one. I think I'm leaning toward the UK cover. Need to check out this series!
