At this point, most of you know that I'm constantly on the look-out for new books to read and (possibly) obsess over. Sure, I get excited for a lot of upcoming releases but there are some books that strike me the right way. Strike me as OMG-I-HAVE-to-read-this-book-as-soon-as-possible-because-I-have-this-feeling-that-it'll-be-ahmaaaayzing.
For me, Stacey Kade's debut The Ghost and The Goth is one of those books.
I was on twitter last night* and when Stacey tweeted that she had a cover for her book, I got excited. Like, REALLY excited.** :D
For those that have no idea what this is about:After a close encounter with the front end of a school bus, Alona Dare goes from Homecoming Queen to Queen of the Dead. Now she’s stuck here in spirit form with no sign of the big, bright light coming to take her away. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser/outcast type who hates the social elite. He alone can see and hear her, but he wants nothing to do with the former mean girl of Groundsboro High.
Can they get over their mutual distrust—and this weird attraction between them—to work together before Alona vanishes for good and Will is locked up for seeing things that don’t exist?
This kind of reminds me of Amanda Ashby's You Had Me At Halo. (which I recommend, FYI) But whatever, I have this gut feeling that it'll be good. I truly do love this cover. I like how the guy's expression is like, "Ugh, holy crap, why must this gorgeously translucent girl annoy me to do her bidding and even though I hate her, I'll still end up doing it anyway....?"
*I find out EVERYTHING on twitter now. I don't even have to pick up a newspaper anymore, hah!
** The type of excited where I have to get up from my computer, move into the next room and TELL my mother that this book that I'm waiting for finally has a cover. I danced along the way, just to make me seem more like a freak. :)
