  1. It's interesting to see the cover trends - large font that takes up the whole cover with an image behind. I'm excited for the Amy Reichert book - I love her books!

    1. I never really noticed it before, but yeah that definitely is a trend in covers!! I have not read an Amy Reichert book before, so I'm really excited to get to her new book. What book do you recommend the most from her?
