So this is how we plan to highlight our favorites!
Unfortunately, the month starts on a freaking Friday! Bummer! So The first week will have six days of highlights, today and all the weekdays next Friday!
Our first week will highlight "Oh So Gorgeous Book Covers!"
Soooooo......Which one is first?
My first take with this cover was wow! Either I have to have this, I need to pre-order it..*fast forward online search*
WHY THE HELL CANT I PRE-ORDER IT! XD
So for those of you not familiar with Sarah Ockler, she famously wrote a blog post in 2012, encouraging white authors to write outside of what they know more. I admit, I still haven't read any of her books, but I think I finally found the one I want to lose my "Sarah Ockler Virginity" to!
"The Summer of Chasing Mermaids" is a Young Adult romance/realistic fiction novel, not slated for release until 2015. What? We have to wait that long????
I know, it sucks right? This is one of the first covers I literally wanted to throw myself into the internet and find a way to own this book! Libby is the interracial romance connoisseur, and I practically pinched myself as I showed her Sarah Ockler's cover reveal of the book.
It's absolutely gorgeous, and I love that it features an interracial couple, ON THE COVER. Aren't they adorable? Shove that up pipe and smoke that Mainstream Fiction! Interracial love exists too! I'm glad your love us amazing, but white people aren't the only people who fall in love!
