Title Love and Cover Love

I just recently stumbled upon the books Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Distasters and The Fine Art of Truth or Dare , and had to share.

Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters: I am absolutely in LOVE with this title. So many YA novels seem to examine junior and senior year so I'm interested to see a book that's just crossed over from MG and features a slightly different YA protagonist. I'm curious to find out if the voice reads younger and, of course, to hear about all of the interesting hurdles that a new high school life can bring! Unfortunately it doesn't come out until March of 2012, though that's one more reason to be happy about entering a New Year--new book releases!

Another release in early 2012 is The Fine Art of Truth or Dare and, really, how can you not love this cover? It has a little of everything: art history, romance, mystery (because you know you're curious who is behind that canvas), and intrigue (because nothing good really comes from truth or dare).

What are you most looking forward to in 2012?


  1. Both look and sound really good!!! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Oh, and I'm looking forward to Thumped in 2012!

  3. Stephanie, I just looked up that book. It sounds really interesting! I think I need to keep a formal tracker of all of the books I want to read, there's so many! I'd love to hear what you think once you're done.

  4. The first book is Bumped and it was so good! It's one of my favorite reads this year!
