Uncovered (1): Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues

Uncovered (1): Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues

Uncovered is a new feature of sorts where I will share a book cover and give some thoughts on it. I don’t know if this will be a regular feature or just something I post when I find have something to share, but we’ll see how it goes.  Thoughts:  I am LOVING this cover! It’s no secret that I bought the first book in the series based solely on its cover (all the gorgeous pink!) and I really thought that the new cover would have a hard time competing. However, Dan Dos Santos does it again and delivers a fantastic… Read more »

I don’t feel too bad since I got these all at great prices and I really wanted them but it’s definitely time for a bit of a book diet. (P.S. – Reminder that all my YA reviews… Read more »
