All I’ve been hearing about is that royal baby. And since it’s almost born in August, I’ve decided that for August I’ll be looking at some YA book covers with a royal theme-note, this edition is coming out a little earlier since I won’t be blogging probably the rest of this week and the following week because of the test of doom.
What the Cover Tells Me: Emme could’ve been a princess. If her mom would’ve married her dad. Instead, she’s just his bastard daughter who lives in Nebraska with her stepdad (the rutabaga farmer) and her mother who sales hay sculptures on Etsy-those child supports dad sends does wonder to their finances. One day though, out of the blue, her mom gets a call that her dad wants Emme to come to the palace. But why after all this time?
What the Book is Really About: A country bumpkin’s celebrity cousin moves to her town and causes havoc on her life.
Verdict: Can we pose a little more lewd? Seriously? I’m just glad that dress was covering everything up.
What the Cover Tells Me: Valerie wants to be a princess. Novel dream, she knows. The closest she is ever going to get to princess material is if she gets a job at Disney World. However, reality TV answers her dreams with Princess for Hire where one young woman will become a princess. But why does Valerie suspect there’s a sinister catch to all of this? Especially since everyone is acting like Stepford Wives.
What is the Book Actually About: Essentially this girl finds out she has this special power to transform in to any princess she wants. I have to wonder if that includes animated characters. Because I would so go for Ariel’s life, after she got her voice back and defeated the sea witch. Two words: Prince Eric.
Verdict: Lazy. It looks like bathroom vanity only more pink and I don’t have pearls.
What the Cover Tells Me: Alexandra (Ali) hates being a princess and has decided that she is going to get herself banished. However, her efforts might’ve gone a little to far since it appears she has destroyed the world. Can Ali fix what she did?
What the Book is Really About: A girl gets a role in a movie and finds out that she’s a look alike for a princess. Things however take a disturbing twist when it turns out that the kingdom might be rebelling.
Verdict: Safe and boring. Honestly, I would probably pass over it its so blah.
