“Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn’t kidding about the “Forever” part.

Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century.

Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya’s normal life might actually be worse. She’s embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she’s pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs.

Or so she thinks. Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, Anya’s Ghost is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.”

Captivating Covers [#29]

bi-weekly-wrap-up-10

Random Quote of the Day: “Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.” – Miguel de Cervantes

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. Every week or so, I share a cover of a novel that I find to be Captivating. It doesn’t have to be one you’ve read, just one that you enjoy! You can add your own twist to it, but I like to include the book synopsis & book details. So, I created this meme to share my findings with you all! 📚

Title: Eliza and Her Monsters

Author: Francesca Zappia

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary

Published: July 13th, 2017

I love, love, love how there’s so much going on on this cover — there’s a female figure on the front, yes, but she has hands covered in paint!! As a fellow painter, this excited me because we don’t see many MC’s that have that artistic/creative ability. Also, the clash between realism & fictional aspects on the cover really caught my attention.
