So B. It

Last night I read So B. It by Sarah Weeks. It was marvelous. The language is rich and the pacing perfect. It is a very tightly written novel with a compelling, suspenseful story arc. It is also profoundly beautiful and provides a truly emotional experience for the reader. 

Yay. 5 Scoops. 

Too bad the cover is stupid; the subject is not representative of the content of the novel, nor do I feel it captures the right tone.  If I was in charge of the world I would have had either a red notebook with a pencil or a photograph of two cards from a Memory game with drawings of yellow ducks. Read the book and tell me what you would have put on the cover...


  1. hahahahaahahahahaha.

    to send this blog to Sarah or not to. :) what shall I do.


  2. Did you guys have a conversation about the cover or something? Don't tell me she loves it.

  3. No. we never had a convo about the cover art. But I can ask her what she thought of it. if you want. ;)

  4. Yes, this cover is terrible and it would never make me think that the contents are worthy of 5 scoops.

    Have you seen this?

    Is it possible to have in your contract that you can approve cover design? That's my #1 wish.

  5. Wow. Thanks for the link Nicole!!!
