You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
Karen Dionne's debut novel, The Marsh King's Daughter was a runaway best seller. She has a new book, The Wicked Sister, coming out in August on both sides of the pond. Yup, added to my TBR list! The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So we have a child's face on both covers. Hidden in the greenery on the US cover, with not much eye to judge. But that half a face shot on the UK cover is unsettling. Not sure if its the stare or the unsmiling mouth. White font for both covers, but I like the US font a bit more. It's not perfect or fully filled and the worn look works well. The orange sepia of the UK cover is quite effective. Both books have cover blurbs from authors I like. But I have to say - if you're getting a cover blurb from Karin Slaughter that says "massively thrilling and altogether unputdownable" - I definitely want to read your book. So I am going with the UK cover this week. What about you?
Which cover do you prefer? And plans to read The Wicked Sister?
