I Judge Books By Their Covers: My Not So Perfect Life

I read and enjoyed Sophie Kinsella's latest British chick-lit novel, "My Not So Perfect Life" a couple weeks ago. It was fun, it was fluffy, and it saved me from my reading slump! Here's my review.

<<<U.S.      U.K.>>>

I don't have super-strong feelings about either cover, though I do like the U.S. one better. In real life, that green is extremely eye-catching -- it definitely stands out on a shelf. I like the dashes of pink and turquoise, and I vastly prefer the more artistic fonts on the U.S. cover over the U.K. one -- those look like they were pulled straight from Microsoft Word! And the U.S. cover just seems to have better flow and balance; somehow those hand-written notes on the U.K. version make it look a bit sloppy.

Both have white, pink and green tones, both have a graphic of a woman, and both appropriately convey the chick-lit tone of the book, but -- while I don't hate it -- there's nothing like better about the U.K. cover over the bright green U.S. one. The U.S. cover is my winner! Which do you like better?


  1. I thought I liked the UK one better, but after all I agree with your opinion about the green. It is eye-catching!

    I do think that the UK book fits the title a bit better... :)

  2. I definitely like the US one better. More eye catching for sure!

  3. Definitely US. The other one is just too.....white? It's kind of boring.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
