You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #301

- 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
Stephen King has a collection of four novellas coming out in May of this year titled If It Bleeds. The title story is a follow up to 2018's The Outsider. I've quite enjoyed the last few books from King and have always liked the novellas, so this is on my TBR list. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So, solid vs. white. Both use fonts that are ominous. The red on the UK cover promises danger. The dancing? disappearing? man on the UK cover is curious. The image used on the US cover is even more curious. (and more than a little creepy.) Obviously a cat, but there's a mouse there too. Cat and mouse suggest a 'game. Hmm, I think I'll go with the UK cover this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer?
Any plans to read If It Bleeds?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.
