You Should Totally Judge This Book By Its Cover
Clearly I need more time to gather my thoughts on The Lords of Discipline (whatever, there’s a reason it’s called #onthecouch), so I thought I would take a time out and tell you about a different book instead.
I know, I know, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But you should totally judge this book by its cover! Oh, there it is. I have to change the title of the post. The original title was Embrace the Crazy.
Maybe if I start by telling you a little about the book, that will make some sense.
Actually, let me start a little further back because, you know, that’s what I do. I like to give a little backstory. A little context, if you will.
So there once was this writer, Kiersten White, and all the world knew her to be this bubbly young woman who wrote about an even bubblier young girl named Evie in a fun, funny trilogy that began with the book Paranormalcy (and ends with Endlessly coming out July 24th #myfavoriteofthe3 #thankyouverymuch #PreorderItHere #OrHere)
So tra la la, life was grand and Kiersten was working on a new book with a new character who was very different from Evie but felt familiar in that oh yes, Kiersten totally wrote this book kind of way, and Agent Michelle was happy.
Tra la la.
That’s Agent Michelle being happy. And perhaps a bit clueless.
I get hit with the crazy:
|Mwa ha ha ha ha ha…|
No, that’s literally what the email said. I swear. And it had MIND GAMES attached.
I mean, good thing she was already my client. Can you imagine if I got an unsolicited email like that? With an attachment???
Actually, I think I did once.
Anyway, I digress. I opened it, started reading, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t stop until the very last page.
I literally could not put down the awesome, twisted, angry, but unbelievable MIND GAMES by Kiersten White.
Oh, and Fia! You total crazycakes. You are so scary but I love you so much.
These three days of Kiersten’s blog tease for MIND GAMES have been so fabulous to watch because each part so perfectly captures this book. I absolutely love Laini Taylor’s blurb. I love the back cover. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover.
Without further ado, here it is:
I think we have to give major props to HarperTeen designers Alison Donalty and Michelle Taormina for coming up with the most perfect cover for this incredibly complex, yet mind blowingly awesome book.
Wait, did I mention that I love this book??
And you’re going to also. As soon as it comes out! On February 19, 2013–yay!!
Oh boo hoo. It’s really not that far away and I have SO many awesome books coming out between now and then you won’t believe how time is going to fly.
But first, judge this book by its cover!! In the comments. It’s so awesome, right? Right??
Then go tell Kiersten what you think! Oh, and read the new bio on the full cover. It’s also scary. I mean scary awesome.
