I love reading book blurbs that make me immediately curious and anxious to read the book. This was certainly the case for the blurb of today’s COVER REVEAL, Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas, due out on September 11, 2012:
My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning my raven’s wings. And when I turned seventeen, one of my visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.
The Institution depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemy, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m finding it harder to do while keeping a secret from everyone, including my best friend Gabe. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me.
But the enemy has been coming to me in my dreams, and I think I’m falling in love with him. He says they’re coming. He says they’re angry. And I think I’ve already helped them win.
I just love the cover character’s eye makeup 🙂 What can I say? I’m a stickler for wings! It is the last few sentences of the book blurb that make me want to read it immediately. Who is the enemy and why would you fall in love with him?! And who are “they”?!
What do you think?
Is this a book you’ll be picking up when it’s available?
