Book Cover Battle – The Start of Everything by Emily Winslow

I recently read and enjoyed immensely Emily Winslow’s latest title, The Start of Everything (read my review).

I reviewed this literary crime thriller as part of the promotion of its UK release coming up in June 2013, but it was first released in the US et al in February 2013 with quite different cover art.

 UK                                                 US

The Start of Everything by Emily Winslow       The Start of Everything by Emily Winslow

I think both covers are eye-catching but they convey different moods for the book.

In my opinion the UK cover has a much more appropriate sense of foreboding and criminality. The US cover, although still looking mysterious, could be mistaken for chick lit with the image of a girl on a bike.

Which cover do you prefer?
