Um... I really hope you didn't cheer there. Because that would be weird.
Anyway, for those of you not in the know, a bunch o'people have vowed to read at least one book a month by a 2010 debut author. Why? Because we are kewl, and because debut writers are kewl, and it just seems natural that we should be kewl together. While it's a little too late for you to join the challenge, I am of the humble opinion that you are kewl too.
Y'know, just so you don't feel left out.
Anyway, my book of the month is The Dark Divine, by Bree Despain. Now, there are a lot of review type things out there. But there's still one thing I wanted to talk about.
Now, I think this cover is pretty (and purple). But I almost didn't read this book because of the combo of cover and title, because it looks and sounds to me like the kind of book that has lots of heaving bosoms and... uh... ooh la la.
That's my euphemism, and I'm sticking to it.
In my opinion, they didn't match at all to what was inside, which was a paranormal romance best suited to the younger teen/tween crowd, at least in my little reality. But I don't get that at all from the cover. I get heaving and ooh la la.
What does this cover make you expect? And if you've read The Dark Divine, do you think the cover fits the book?
PS - I leave for SCBWI today! Find me and say hello if you're going to be there so we can be kewl together!
