So yesterday Maggie Stiefvater revealed both the title and cover for the second installment in the Raven Boys series. Oooooh, I hear you say. Oooooh, indeed. I haven't actually read The Raven Boys yet (I know, I know) but I'll make sure I get to it before book two comes out this September. Is that the UK release date as well as the US? Anybody know?
Anyway, let me know what you think of the cover. I like it... I think. I like the ravens but I'm not a fan of the shadowing on the author name and I'm not sure this is one I'd pick up in a bookshop. Actually, I know it's not one I'd pick up BUT we all know how many times I've swooned over a cover and really disliked the story inside (*cough* Halo *cough*).
Meh, I might not be the biggest fan in the world of the cover but Maggie Stiefvater is one of those authors whose books I'll preorder whatever the cover is like, whatever the story is. I trust her as a writer and, although I haven't read all of her books, she's never let me down yet.
P.S. Sorry I've been MIA on here, on Twitter and, as always, terrible at responding to my emails. I was away from Friday until Sunday night on my writing retreat (which was AMAZING but I'll do a separate post about that) and I've pretty much been writing ever since. Normal service resumes from now, though! Well, maybe not with the emails... I wouldn't be me if I wasn't woefully behind with them.
