I Judge Books By Their Covers: Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery

Hi, my name is Lindsay, and I judge books by their covers.

I'm reading the charming and festive "Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery" right now (which, by the way, is making me crave bread and pastries like nobody's business), and it seemed an appropriate time for a cover battle!

 U.K. // U.S.

Oh my gosh, this is quite possibly the toughest cover comparison yet! If you look at these posts often, you'll know I almost always prefer illustrated covers over realistic ones -- and I really like the cheerful, Christmas-y U.K. cover, as well as the fact that it shows the village from the book -- so it should be a no-brainer. But the U.S. cover is really well-done. It's so delightfully festive, the colors work, the fonts are perfect, and I just want to climb right into that shop!

It's a difficult choice, and I'm a bit surprised at myself, but I think I like the U.S. cover just a liiiiitle bit better. It draws the eye right where it needs to be -- the title -- and then encourages you to take in the shop scene, and even hold the book close to your face to see all the details. And, while I love it, the U.K. cover is just a tiny bit busy.

My winner: U.S. cover

Do tell: Which cover do you prefer?

  1. I agree with you. I like them both, but I like the US one just a little bit better. The UK one is just a tad cutesy for me.


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