Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Uglies came out my first year of high school, and I’ve always been arrested by the cover–a pretty girl hiding behind some sort of plant. I’ve always meant to read the series, and when Simon & Schuster gave an eBook of Uglies away for free this summer while they were promoting Leviathan, I figured it would be a good opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. I could read Uglies and experience an eBook at the same time.
As you may have surmised, I want to be a book editor. This means I try and keep a very close eye on the publishing industry. As a book lover, this is twice as rewarding, since it gives me a look at what’s coming up for me to devour next. As I ever seek to create more content for my corner of the Internet, I’m going to share my findings. Once a week, on Tuesdays (when most books are released), I will write about two books that have caught my eye–one upcoming, and one recently published.
