Librarian Deena Lipomi Talks Covers, Part 1

I did a fun interview with Deena Lipomi, a YA Librarian at Brighton Memorial Library in Rochester, NY. I asked her about book covers, in relation to the Cover Stories series, and she gave me all kinds of fun tidbits. Here's part 1 of her interview. I'll roll it out in small bites because what she says is such fun!"The types of covers that get checked out most often tend to be: a) Iconic. WAKE & FADE by Lisa McMann, THIRSTY by M. T. Anderson, EVERMORE by Alyson Noel. I think this is spillover from the Twilight covers. wakeandfade.png

SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT by Shana Norris, GERT GARIBALDI'S RANTS AND RAVES: ONE BUTT CHEEK AT A TIME by Amber Kizer. somethingtoblog.jpggertgaribaldi.jpg c) Hinting at an urban fantasy story. FRAGILE ETERNITY by Melissa Marr, The Faerie Path series by Frewin Jones. fragile-eternity-melissa-marr.jpgfaeriepath.jpg d) Single word titles. See (a) above." Interesting, right? What makes you pick up a library book? Any of the things above? I think I'm most drawn to those "iconic" covers above, honestly. More from Deena soon!
