O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
Still reading Todos Santos by Deborah Clearman and just started Based Upon Availability by Alix Strauss. A review of Asleep and blog Q&A with author Wendy Raven McNair will be posted in the next day or two. But today we are discussing the covers of The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel & Nancy Garfinkel. The one on the left is the hardcover edition and the one on the right is the paperback, which will be out in September. I have the hardcover edition. I find it to rather plain. Just an egg?? I love eggs but a picture of one does nothing for me. With this book I was drawn in by a description sent in an e-mail. I think if I saw it in the store, I would walk right past it. The paperback cover looks far more engaging. The color of the cups and pans draws me in. I think color in general attracts me most to a book cover. Perhaps that's why there's such a deep contrast in the two covers? What does everyone think? Which cover would draw you in?
I've been stuck in a rut and I decided I needed a creative outlet. This is it! I've been a self-professed bookaholic since age five, and one day I'm going to get my dream job in book publishing! Follow me on Twitter at bookangel224!!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
