My Book Has An Accent!

Received a beautiful copy of the UK ARC yesterday, and here is a picture of me holding it:

It's so interesting what different publishers will choose to highlight and emphasize about the book and on the galleys. You can't really see it, but the cover is basically this beautiful silver with gorgeous silhouettes of trees and birds patterned on the back. Overlaying it all is a quote from the novel:

I know some of you are thinking maybe I deserved it. But before you start pointing fingers, let me ask you: Is what I did really so bad? So bad I deserved to die? So bad I deserved to die like that?
Is what I did really so much worse than what anybody else does?
Is it really so much worse than what you do?
Think about it.

Anyway, I'm super super excited. In this picture the galley is also serving a secondary useful function, as I am holding it up and using it to conceal a mosquito bite ON MY FACE, procured yesterday, like, ten minutes before I was supposed to go on a date. Yes, peeps. This kind of stuff only happens to me.

This post is dedicated to my friend Lisa, who a) didn't know I had a blog until this weekend and b) had to listen to me complain about the aforementioned disfiguring bug bite yesterday and miraculously was able to keep her laughter in check.

Congrats! (On the cover, not the mosquito bite.) I get more and more excited to read this book every day.

Oh, wow I love that cover. It is so beautiful.

So sorry about the mosquito bite. When I was litte, some kind of bug, we suspected a mosquito, got in the house and bit me during my sleep. One bite was right above my left eye. It became very swollen and remained like that for around two weeks. To this day that one eye still squints more than the other. :(

Congrats again on the awesome cover!

~Briana :D

Yay thanks for letting me steal this from you at dinner the other day! Time now to immerse myself in Sam's world :)

Care to show us what the front cover looks like? Is it the same?
I'm reading the ARC at the moment (100 pages to go) and it's SO GOOD. Brilliant, can't wait to finish it, hopefully tonight or very soon. I'm definitely planning to post a review this week - I hope that's okay? :)
