I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?
Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe), and discuss cover changes.
Cover Change: Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw
First sentence: “This is one of the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. “
You can call me a BNF (Big Name Fan) of Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here because holy awesomeness, this book is funny and a huge delight! It spoke to my teenager self about all the love for fanfiction.
Obsessed with a supernatural teen drama (think of tropes that come with the Chosen one stories mixed with typical teen dramas), Scarlett Epstein started writing fanfiction, and when her beloved show ends, what does she do? Well, what else can you do but write fanfiction involving people you know in real life!
