The More Truthful Liar Cover

If you haven't heard by now, the cover of Liar has been changed. Justine actually had a part in designing it, read about that here. And for all you who wrote emails to Bloomsbury, blogged and commented. Thank you! You were a huge part in this victory. Bask in this cover!

It comes out in October and I'm buying two copies. One for me and one to give away in a future contest! I highly encourage everyone to BUY a copy of this book. Let's get some amazingly high book sales, it will make victory even sweeter :)

I hope that everyone continues to try and diversify their reading. I'm so glad that Justine started this conversation, by blogging about it. She gave me the opportunity to guest-blog for her and I gave suggestions of YA books about poc as well as reasons as to why it's important to diversify your reading habits. The response and feedback was great. I met new people, discovered new blogs and got some more suggestions. Thanks so much for that opportunity Justine!

  1. You're right, Miss A--we need to throw our support behind this book to send a message not only that we LOVE covers with POC, but also that we support authors who speak truth to power...

  3. I am happy they changed the cover. I don't know if I'll even buy one copy, since I normally don't buy or read young adult fiction. But I do like the fact that bloggers, commentors, and the author were able to get the cover changed.

  4. Monique,

    Why not buy a copy and donate it? I know a lot of girls who can't buy books. Donate it to your local shelter, youth center or school.

  6. I'm buying it too for sure. Also, I loved your post at Justine's blog - I added several of your suggestions to my wishlist and ordered Copper Sun by Sharon Drape. Can't wait to read it.
