You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #308

- 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
And for those of you who enjoy Nicholas Sparks books, there's a new one coming out in September on both sides of the pond. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. I must admit, I'm a sucker for pictures of doors, so the US cover appeals to me. Not sure why - perhaps the opening to the unknown, a story, a person and more. I like this door and the worn porch boards. It's a 'solid' picture. In contrast, the UK cover is very nebulous with the unfocused picture. And in case you weren't sure what type of books Sparks writes, we've got a couple kissing. (Romance!) I'm not too sure about the use of the hexagon to outline the title and author name. Flower are in the forefront of both books. Honestly, quite an easy choice for me this week - US. What about you?
Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Return?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I don't like the blurriness of the UK cover so I prefer the US cover as well.

I agree Bermudaonion - the blurriness does not appeal to me either.

I've never read a Sparks novel, but I agree that the US cover is the winner. The title really pops in contrast to the green on the door.

There's a time and place for Sparks novels Ethan! A clear win for the US cover this week.
