Cover reveal: What The Valley Knows, by Heather Christie

Sometimes, it’s a single line in summary that hooks me. That isn’t to say that the rest of the summary isn’t good or interesting, just that that one line is incredibly intriguing.

A lot of summaries try to pull it off, but end up with something a little closer to cliched. That’s not the case for What The Valley Knows, by Heather Christie. The last line of this summary, which I’ll show you in a moment, grabbed my attention and has yet to let go.

Add in the fact that this cover pulls back to mind the romance in the story, and you’ve got yourself a cover that shouldn’t have too much trouble selling the book. Click on through to take a look.

Updated book recommendation: 13 Little Blue Envelopes, by Maureen Johnson


(Note: This recommendation was first published in September of 2013. You can see the original version here.)

Maureen Johnson’s 13 Little Blue Envelopes is a novel I’ve read multiple times. It’s also a novel I enjoy every time I read it, for a few different reasons.

Yes, one of those reasons is that I always seem to forget the details. That, however, is not what keeps me coming back.

Book recommendation: Panic, by Lauren Oliver


Panic, by Lauren Oliver, is one of those books I kept meaning to get to. It had been sitting on one of my bookshelves for months before I did, and not for any fault of its own. I just never seemed to be in quite the right mood to read it.

Finally, about a month or so ago, the right mood struck me. I wanted something in the young adult category, something tense but not terrifying. Something I’d have a hard time putting down.

Boy, did Panic ever fit the bill.

Cover reveal: Welcome to Your Life, by Katrina Marie

Something about the summary for Welcome to Your Life, by Katrina Marie, struck me as soon as I read it. I’m not entirely sure what it was, but I think it had something to do with the single mother angle.

Book recommendation: The Truth About Alice, by Jennifer Mathieu


I can’t remember what initially led me to The Truth About Alice, by Jennifer Mathieu. I may have read a review somewhere, or maybe I just came across it while browsing through a bookstore.

What I do remember is that I fell in love with that cover as soon as I saw it. There’s something in the jagged handwriting and dark silhouette that just sends out so much emotion. It’s clearly a promise–one that the novel doesn’t hold back on keeping.
