Laurie just recently posted the British book cover design for Wintergirls which looks way different from the U.S. version. I like it, but I feel it gives the book a COMPLETELY different vibe. What do you think? Which do you think represents the book better?

And don’t forget to watch Pretty Little Liars on Tuesdays at 7pm on ABC Family! What do you think about the show? I have heard both good things and bad things…but either way, it seems like everyone is watching it! I am a bit drama-deprived now that Gossip Girl and Glee are on summer hiatus…

Holly’s Suggested Reading List: http://www.blackholly.com/suggestedreading.html

I love love love when author’s create artifacts from their own fictional worlds! And of course, when I say artifact, I am refering to the Norwegian Industrial Metal Band named Artifact. Actually not really, but I wish, right?! Anyways check out this cool subway poster Holly created for her new Curse Workers series:
