Paper Valentine is a hauntingly poetic tale of love and death by the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement and The Space Between.
This book's intricate cover totally gripped me. Think of how much effort the designer must have gone through, putting the complex designs that go with the girl's dress, which is especially gorgeous. The heart in the middle completely suits the name, Valentine, don't you think? Also, the story line is completely intriguing. I've recently requested for it on Net Galley and hope that the publisher would approve it!
