I didn’t know it was possible to be so in love with a book’s cover art, but let me tell you right now — I am in love with this book’s cover art. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s a book by Laurie Viera Rigler, the sequel to Confessions Of A Jane Austen Addict.
Rude Awakenings Of A Jane Austen Addict brings us back to Courtney, modern L.A. girl, last seen in the body of English aristocratic daughter Jane Mansfield a hundred and fifty years earlier. Except now we have Jane in the body of Courtney in present-day California! Oh my! I’m really psyched to see this plot, because one of my biggest issues with Confessions was the lack of understanding regarding what happened to Jane while Courtney was running around English gardens and chatting up attractive English gentlemen in Jane’s body.
But back to the cover art. A Victorian beauty in a gorgeous pink and white dress — grasping an iPod? Really? Loves it. Anything with a pink sash and awesome font and mixture of textures immediately grabs my eye. Of course, I liked the cover art for the first book, too. But I’m really excited to get my hands on this one, another novel in the long line of original Austen fiction. I just can’t get enough! Rude Awakenings will be released June 25.
