New #Cover for Sweet (Sweet #1) by @EmmyLaybourne




Emmy Laybourne, author of the Monument 14 trilogy, takes readers on a dream vacation that goes first comically, then tragically, then horrifyingly wrong!

The luxurious celebrity cruise launching the trendy new diet sweetener Solu should be the vacation of a lifetime. But Laurel is starting to regret accepting her friend Viv’s invitation. She's already completely embarrassed herself in front of celebrity host Tom Forelli—the hottest guy ever!—and she's too sick to even try the sweetener. And that's before Viv and all the other passengers start acting really strange.

Tom knows that he should be grateful for this job and the chance to shed his former-child-star image. His publicists have even set up a 'romance' with a sexy reality star. But as things on the ship start to get wild, he finds himself drawn to a different girl. And when the hosting gig turns into an expose on the shocking side effects of Solu, it's Laurel that he's determined to save.


So here are the two covers for Emmy Laybourne's book Sweet.  I have to say that normally I HATE it when a publisher changes the covers but for me I really love that second one!  The paperback grabs the eye and names me want to know what in the world is going on!  So what about you?

I havent read this one because the cover just didnt grab me. But this new one does!  Sadly this new cover won't be released until June 7th of next year but now I might need to grab it from my library!

Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and action-packed, SWEET is a wild ride that holds up a warped mirror to our society. I loved it from the first line to the last. (Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites)

Laybourne's fictional world highlights themes of friendship, the culture of celebrity, and addiction...A finely knit narrative in which romance pairs perfectly (somehow) with societal horror. (Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC School Library Journal)

Laybourne's masterful novel opens as a comical potential romance, becomes suspenseful, then horrific, and ends as a gripping action-adventure survival story sure to enthrall readers ... The book is recommended as required summer reading. (VOYA, Starred Review)
