Daphne Contest

I got my books today! Yay!

These are the books that I need to judge for the Daphne Du Maurier Competition, and I am soooooo excited to say I don't recognize the authors! :)

I think two of the books are from the UK and one from the US... no Canadian authors. :(

I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to say about these books, I don't think there's really a rule, but just in case lets call them book A, B, and C. I know... I'm original right?

Anyways if their good I guess I can name them right? Based on just the covers (and yes - that's how I judge books - not people!) To me I won't pick up a book with a boring cover... doesn't matter how good it is! Does that make me shallow or something? All I know is I need a sexy, intriguing cover to draw me... Fabio does nothing to me thankyouverymuch... but a sexy pose of even a woman or lipstick smeared across the page gets me excited. ;)

As for my day... it was fabulous. I worked on some stuff at home and talked to Amy. Amy was so friggin' entertaining it was tooooo cute! Her and her alcohol induced writing! :) I haven't laughed so hard in such a long time! Thank you Amy!!! :) Anytime you have any alcohol in hand - find me on facebook! ;)

Have fun with the judging! Once the contest is over you'll have to let us know about the books once the contest is done. :)

Yes, the cover does have to intrigue me at least a little bit. One of the books I'm reading now has an awful cover, and the book is just dragging on... If I didn't promise a review to who sent it to me, I'd wouldn't be finishing it. :P

Just wanted to say, I really enjoyed reading your answers to the interview a few posts ago! Sorry I'm moving so slow -- been under the weather the last few days, but I'm rallying! :)

Good luck with the judging! :)
