Neat story about the first cover at the top, Girl Meets Cake. I received an ARC for a book called My Invisible Boyfriend by Susie Day, and I'm looking all over for a copy of the cover for this blog entry. Then I go to the author's website and realize that my copy is the North American edition of this Girl Meets Cake book. The NA edition cover art isn't released yet. Here's how I found out:
Surreally enough, I’m currently rewriting bits of Girl Meets Cake for the US edition - which will be called My Invisible Boyfriend, and available sometime in 2010. Not Americanifying it: just tinkering with a thing or two to make the whole thing even more delicious (I hope!). It’s a bit odd, being able to check different drafts against an actual proper book-shaped version, but I’m having fun dipping a toe back into Finchworld and reacquainting myself with geeky Heidi, and Mysterious E, and the endless references to cake… (From Susie Day's blog)
I am so interested to see what changes would be made. Girl Meets Cake looks like it has more of a baking theme. I wonder if it'll be the same in Invisible Boyfriend. The cover for the ARC I have is a tableaux of a couple intimate on a couch. Beside them sit a white cut-out of another guy and then a girl looking cute and as if something's up. The whole thing is very playful.
This week I also received Darklight by Lesley Livingston. I've read Wondrous Strange and liked it. I didn't actually know it was going to be a trilogy. Livingston knows how to write magic realism into an urban romance well.
Possessed looks *Awesome*
Diddo Clone Codes. It's written by a mother father son team.
This week I also got a beautiful hardcover copy of The Dark Divine by Bree Despain, along with a wonderful and thoughtful note (thanks, T!). I started reading it and it is not like I imagined. There's so much mystery going on right now. I'm like "who are these characters and what happened to them?" You kind of start right into the action, a few years after a certain incident. But I still don't know what happened between Grace, her brother and Daniel, their best friend. I will provide more in a full review soon. Has anyone read this yet?
