- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
Once in awhile I like to lose a lazy day in a read different from my usual murder and mayhem. Josie Silver's previous book, One Day in December, was a Reese's Book Club selection. Her latest, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird, releases in March. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. A very pastel-y look for the US cover. The images don't overly grab me, but do let the reader know there's most likely something between the two. The mirrored image upside down does mirror the plot. The UK cover has gone for a bolder look with that solid red. The two toothbrushes again let the reader know there's a couple involved. The tagline gives us even more info. And a blurb from Jodi Piccoult also lets the reader know what style and story will be found inside. I'm not a big fan of either this week, but am going to go with the UK cover. I find the US cover just a bit blah. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Two Lives of Lydia Bird?
