So remember last week when I gave y'all a glimpse inside Amy Spalding's upcoming YA cover for The Reece Malcolm List? Well today is the day to show off it's official cover!! I must say, it's very eye catching - sweet, but intriguing. Take a look for yourself & tell me what you think:
Let's discuss, shall we? I am a HUGE fan when YA covers do not put a face on the cover. Even though our characters are described to us, I still like to imagine my peeps as my own peeps inside my head. Sometimes when there is a blatant person staring back at me, it throws the whole thing off. So major props for not showing this chick's face. Second, I'm all about the type on my covers. I really, really like it when a book's title is incorporated in the image somewhere. It just adds that extra bit of creativity & sophistication. And third, COURTNEY SUMMERS BLURBS IT! Oh heck yes. I love that woman & seeing her words on the cover have pushed my desire to want to read this book over the edge.
In case you missed my previous post, here's what the book is about:
Things I know about Reece Malcolm:
1. She graduated from New York University.
2. She lives in or near Los Angeles.
3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week.
4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon.
5. She’s my mother.
Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much.
L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love.
