A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL- The Cover!!!!!!!!

I thought about writing a long post about covers because honestly, I never get tired of telling the story about The Naughty List (my mom thought it was porn). But instead, I just want to say that I'm SO HAPPY WITH MY NEW COVER!!!

I have obsessed and fretted about what the cover for A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL (Summer 2011) would look like. The book is about a girl who is compelled to help people, even though each time she does, her friends and family start to forget who she is--her very existence fading into a glowing light. So... what kind of cover could express that????

Well, I'm so excited to show you!! I just think.... it's so pretty. :-)

Thanks, Talei! And Elissa, I was struggling trying figure out how to describe the book in a sentence. I didn't even get a chance to mention the words HOT BOYFRIEND. lol

Bryan, your envy makes my day :-)

Ahhh--LOVE! I'm not usually a fan of faces on the cover, but I think this works beautifully.

And may I just say that I am DYING to read this book? I need to see if I can use my Bookanista connections to snag an ARC (or maybe one of the other Bookanistas will) cause I don't WANNA wait until June.

Suzanne Young said...

Thanks, Brodi!
And Shannon, I agree. And luckily this model fit perfectly with my Charlotte. Yay! And I'm sure we can work something out. Cupcakes can be very persuasive. :-)

A girl who is compelled to help people, even though each time she does, her friends and family start to forget who she is? I can totally see that.
And an additional plus?
IT'S SO GORGEOUS!

Love, Hannah
