Cover Love

I saw this book and my first thought was, "I've been there." I'm not proud of it. I don't advise it. But I do know how she's feeling. It's that morning after, face down in a pillow, world is spinning and it simply won't stop hangover.

I unfortunately have a small Rolodex of those mornings to choose from during my college years and the capstone, of course, the morning after my bachelorette party. (Kids don't drink! This is not a happy place!)

What I love about the cover for Spin by Catherine McKenzie is that one glimpse of it and you have at the very least a window into the story and know a little something about its protagonist. Plus I just love the beautiful contrast of white sheets, mint green dress, and jet black hair. It's gorgeous...and it makes me never want to drink again!

Here's a little what it's about. It sounds like classic chick lit meets Bridget Jones and it's definitely going on my TBR list as a very good contender for one of my vacation reads.

Katie Sandford has just gotten an interview at her favorite music magazine, The Line. It's the chance of a lifetime. So what does she do? Goes out to celebrate -- and shows up still drunk at the interview. No surprise, she doesn't get the job, but the folks at The Line think she might be perfect for another assignment for their sister gossip rag. All Katie has to do is follow It Girl Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop (and complete the 30-day program without getting kicked out), they'll reconsider her for the job at The Line.

Katie takes the job. But things get complicated when real friendships develop, a cute celebrity handler named Henry gets involved, and Katie begins to realize she may be in rehab for a reason. Katie has to make a decision -- is publishing the article worth everything she has to lose?

Have you seen any good covers lately? And more importantly, am I the only one who sees this picture and feels Katie's pain?
