Cover Love #7

Cover Love
Hosted by  Shae at Shae Has Left the Room.


Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

Lucy and Owen's relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and -- finally -- a reunion in the city where they first met.

A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith's new novel shows that the center of the world isn't necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.

First of all, I'm excited for Jennifer's new book.  I loved The Statistical Probability and The Comeback Season.  This Is What Happy Looks Like was just okay, but I'm sure she can produce another great read.  Now for the cover...

I love how it has the same feel as The Statistical Probability and This Is What Happy Looks Like.  I love the colors (like, really, really love them).  Book covers where the skyline of a city is seen are always favorites of mine (Divergent trilogy, anyone?).  Plus, I love how the title is grammatically correct. (Grammar nerd here.)

Anyone want to share their thoughts?


  1. That is a pretty cover, though I'm not crazy about covers with that 'drawn-on' look. The story sounds interesting as well.

  2. I like how well it goes with the other two books. They'll look lovely together on the shelf.

  3. Ooh, that looks interesting! Hey, have you ever done a review of Divergent?
