Book Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to my brand new book blog! Reading YA, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance is a passion of mine and on this blog I will post my reviews and hopefully discuss books with all of you! Happy hopping!

Book Blog Hop Question:

"What is your favorite book cover?"


When I went to ALA in Washington D.C. over the Summer I did not intend to pick up this book. I stood in line for another author, Lucy Christopher, and when I reached the little booth to purchase my copy of Stolen, the woman selling the books asked if I would like a free ARC of Plain Kate. The author, Erin Bow, was also signing, and while I didn’t recognize the title, I was drawn to the beautiful cover and gladly accepted. It took me two days to read this book and I can say with all honesty that it is my favorite book that I picked up on my trip. It is such a beautiful, moving story and the cover is so striking. I like the contrast between the ordered structure of the city landscape and the carefree pose of the girl on the rooftop. The blue scarf adds a splash of color to the hazy, gold backdrop and her drab, brown attire.

  9. Re: The Girl Who Could Fly- I just started reading 'Fly', but so far so good! I'm hoping the endorsement on the cover rings true. I'll let you know what I think when I get around to finishing it. :-)
