Hardcover vs. Paperback Special OMG I'm Quoted Edition!

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

Hardcover

Paperback

Amazon.com:

The wait is over for the paperback of this irresistible, fast-paced, hit-worthy debut!

When funny, charming, absolutely-normal Audrey Cuttler dumps her boyfriend Evan, he writes a song about her that becomes a number-one hit—and rockets Audrey to stardom!

Suddenly, tabloid paparazzi are on her tail and Audrey can barely hang with her friends at concerts or the movies without getting mobbed—let alone score a date with James, her adorable coworker at the Scooper Dooper. Her life will never be the same—at least, not until Audrey confronts Evan live on MTV and lets the world know exactly who she is!


So I've always been a huge fan of the hardcover and thought the paperback was nice IF they HAD to change the cover. Then something changed today, the lovely Charley informed me that I was QUOTED(!!!!) on the back of the paperback!

Ok we'll get back to that in a bit, so the cover, always loved the hardcover, it's powerful graphic appeal, love it. I think my favorite thing about the paperback (besides being quoted of course) would be the screenprinted looking title, and if you actually touch it, it feels screenprinted, nice touch. I also like the photo and the colors of the cover in general.

Ok back to the quote, the book doesn't come out technically until Thursday but I was able to find a copy. And it turns out, a bunch of us bloggers are quoted! Reviewer X, Writer's Block Reviews, The Page Flipper, Hope's Bookshelf, The Compulsive Reader, Teen Book Review among others are quoted! Check it out below, it's surreal! What a boost for the blogging community!

Hardcover or Paperback?
