Meg Rosoff is guest blogging over at Penguin. She's there the entire week and answering questions in the comments. So far the topics have ranged from her cottage on the Suffolk coastline, to poisonous mushrooms, to the moons of Jupiter. Rosoff's most recent novel, What I Was, was on my Best of 2008 list and her upcoming The Bride's Farewell is due out August 6th. Head on over and check it out.
I know you've likely seen this cover already, but it's frankly too pretty not to post. Also, it's Donia. And I love Donia. This is the cover for Darkest Mercy --the fifth and final book in Melissa Marr 's Wicked Lovely series. And just for fun, I thought I'd post all five covers side by side here now, both to show the arc of truly lovely cover art for a series, and to try to determine which one is my favorite. First of all-- so pretty . This series has just had consistently gorgeous covers and I love seeing that, especially for a series I've followed and enjoyed (I should say that has inspired the full range of human emotions in me--which can only be a good thing--even when I'm railing against some bit of nonsense Keenan got himself up to). Second, as far as my favorite goes, it's definitely down to either the cover of Ink Exchange or the one for Darkest Mercy . I love them both. But I think, I think , I'm gonna have to go with Ink Exchange . Bec
