Guess what arrived today! I know, I don't normally do these "book cover posts" but I just couldn't resist. I thought this cover was beautiful when I saw it online. That's one of the main reasons I bought it. *blushes* I know. I'm bad. I don't usually judge a book by its cover, I promise! But this one was just too gorgeous to miss.
Anyway, it arrived this morning and can I just say: OMFG!!!!!111!!!111!!1!1!
This book is even more stunning in real life than it is online. Even my mum liked it, and she's someone who usually doesn't care for books and their covers. I bought the US version, because I didn't want to wait for the paperback to come out in the UK. The UK cover isn't as nice anyway.
The cover has a wonderful feel to it, and the writing sticks out and the lilac covers.. *drools*
And the pages! They're really rough along the edges, to which my mum made the comment "Oh wow, they've made it old." Yes, mum, yes they have.
Excuse me. I do apologise. But I just wanted to share how in love with this book I am already, and I haven't even started reading yet. I've heard amazing things about Nightshade, so I can't wait to get started!
