A Bevy Of Books…

This book was a sweet Middle Grade book about life and death and all of the issues in between. Odette is taken out of her happy place when her parents decide to sell everything that makes their life comfortable to buy a motor home. They then decide to travel cross country to visit Odette’s dying grandmother. It’s a lovely book about a special family. Nothing seems to work for Odette as she learns how to deal with a puppy that’s not the one she wants, sharing one cell phone and an autistic annoying brother.

Reading this now…I hate this cover and I thought that would make me hate the book…I know this is petty but sometimes some arcs have awful covers that make me want to not read the book…are covers that important? Yes…I think they are! I even hate when a Kindle book has an awful cover. Rain…we agree with this one…right?

But…this kind of dystopian fantasy is really good…it’s “I can’t put it down” good. It reminds me of The Night Circus…which I loved!

Some new books from yesterday…Amazon and NetGalley…you rock! I can’t wait to dive into the beachy one and Sweetbitter? Here is Goodread’s blurb…

A lush, raw, thrilling novel of the senses about a year in the life of a uniquely beguiling young woman, set in the wild, alluring world of a famous downtown New York restaurant…


This was Thursday’s post which I forgot to post so I will pop in again later today!

    Oh, yes, covers can make or break a reading experience! I think that I prefer reading e-books to seeing ugly covers while reading.

    I don't know what's worse…a cover that is ugly because it's the “stand-in” cover on an ARC…or one that is ugly on purpose. The cover on Sing Down the Stars is such a hot mess! LOL

    I don't read much (well, any) middle grade fiction, but Far From Fair sounds wonderful. The cover of the second book IS really ugly… enough to prevent me from even picking it up. Your new books look great. I'm feeling the urge to visit NetGalley again!

    I judge books by covers- even though I know I shouldn't! I have read lots of books with covers I don't like, but it is hard not to judge. 🙂
