Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I’ve been savoring Gayle Forman’s Just One Day for the past few days. I just finished reading it a few minutes ago. I’m still processing what I think of the book but hopefully, I can review it soon. It reminds me of other contemporary YA novels that I’ve enjoyed before: Graffiti Moon because of the one day/night thing, Anna and the French Kiss because it’s also set in Paris and Wanderlove because of the meeting a guy and traveling with him aspect.
Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the cover. I thought it could have gotten a better design but now that I’ve read the book, I feel like the cover fits the story. It represents Allyson’s thoughtful moments while traveling around Europe – because it shows a girl hanging out in a cafe and thinking about life while enjoying a cup of coffee (or is that tea). Even the gigantic watch plays a part in Allyson’s story. I also like that the picture shows a hazy reflection of what she can see outside the window.
What about you, what are you reading right now? Have you paid any attention to how the cover of that book relates to the story?
