So, has anyone else noticed something rather red about YA covers as of late? Big, red and rather poofy?
Yes, I am talking about all the gorgeous red dresses that are gracing YA book covers. While I absolutely love all these covers, I am rather perplexed by the trend. Was there a fashion notice that I missed? Should I be rushing out and buying matching gowns to go with my books?
I feel like I’ve missed some out – are there any other red dress books I’ve skipped? Not that seven nine is exactly a small number… in fact, I didn’t realise how many red dress books there were out there until I put together this post. And any thoughts on the trend? While I like it, I’m not sure I get it…
God, I can’t believe it is August already! I seem to say that every month, but hey – I am always legitimately surprised by the date! Anyhow, the arrival of August has means some books we’ve all been longing for a soon to be released. Luckily, the books I have been longing for this month aren’t coming out towards the end of August. Why is this good? Because I still have catching up to do from July! My copy of Jealousy by Lili St. Crow only got here today and Linger is still in the post… *grumbles* Anyhow, even though I need the time – y’all can sit around waiting with bated breath.
So, here are a few YA Paranormal novels I am looking forward to. As usual, check out Tez Says for a list of August Releases, Fiendishly Bookish for a list of PNR/UF releases and LE for a general list of paranormal releases.
