- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
Haylen Beck is the pseudonym for an award winning crime author. I'm really looking forward to this forthcoming suspense novel. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Okay, so deserted roads on both covers. It's hard to see the terrain on the US cover, but the road is on the woods on the UK cover. One road is paved and the other isn't. Headlights on both covers - one coming and one going. differing views makes you wonder if the danger is coming towards the character or if the character is running from the danger. I'm going to go with the US cover this week - I like the darker look and the winding road shot a bit better. The off kilter lettering also appeals to me more. Any plans to read Here and Gone? Which cover do you prefer? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.
