Whew, kinda a long post title, don't you think? Anyways, this week I'm judging What I Saw And How I Lied by Judy Blundell. I won this from a contest (thanks Jess from Lost In A Book) and wasn't originally going to read it (I entered to win Graceling, which I also won) but read great reviews on it, so I decided to put it on my Plan To Read list. It sounds like a soap opera in book-form. Anyways, here's the cover:
I don't like it. I think they were going for the vintagey-type look-and I love all things vintage-but they didn't do it right and instead it just looks...weird. The lipstick is too dark, the shirt should be a different color than the background, and place the words are in and the font are...lame. It definitely doesn't draw me in and, based just on the cover, would be something that I wouldn't take a second glance at. But, that's just my opinion.... What do you think?
