I recently signed up to help us with book reveals and other announcements with Xpresso Book Tours. Since they come at some wonky times, some of these will come on non-designated days (by which I mean not Mondays).
Today is my first one, and I’ll be revealing the cover for Under My Skin by Laura Diamond. (Please note it was originally titled Hello, I Love You.)This is a new book from Swoon Reads Romance.
Publication date: April 12th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Bookish Brit Adam Gibson is one wonky heartbeat away from a fatal arrhythmia. But staying alive requires Adam to become keenly focused on both his pulse and the many different daily medications he must take in exactly the right dosages. Adam’s torn between wanting to live and knowing that someone else must die in order for him to do so. He needs a new heart.
The pressure is getting to him. Adam stops talking to his friends back home, refuses to meet kids at his new school, and shuts his parents out entirely. His days are spent wondering if can cope with having a dead man’s heart beating inside his chest, or if he should surrender to the thoughts of suicide swirling around in his head.
And then a donor is found…
Outspoken artist Darby Fox rarely lets anything stand in her way of achieving her goals . Whether it’s painting, ignoring her homework (dyslexia makes a mess out of words anyway), kissing a hot boy she doesn’t even know, or taking the head cheerleader down a peg , no one has ever accused Darby of being a shy. She also happens to be the twin sister to a perfect brother with good looks, good grades, manners, and the approval of their parents – something Darby has never had.
Darby’s always had bad timing . She picks the worst time to argue with her brother Daniel. In a car with bald tires, on an icy road in the freezing cold, the unthinkable happens. In a split-second, everything changes forever.
Now doesn’t that sound like an interesting book?! I’m super excited and curious to see what this book entails. I have heard of similar books, but this one definitely sounds unique. It kind of reminds me a bit of All the Bright Places in that the boy and the girl meet in unusual circumstances. I will definitely be keeping this on my radar.
Now, are you ready for this awesome cover?!?
Wait for it….
Feast your eyes my friends. Isn’t it great? I really like it. It seems pretty fitting to the description of the book. Go add it to your Goodreads!
