Cover Reveal: Olivia Twisted + Giveaway
OLIVIA TWISTED by Vivi Barnes
Coming November 5, 2013
I actually hadn’t heard of OLIVIA TWISTED until I saw the email that there was going to be a cover reveal for it. The title led me to believe that this was some sort of a modern retelling of Oliver Twist, one of my very favorite books, so of course I had to check it out.
And when I read the book’s description I was completely sold. This book sounds seriously awesome and I cannot believe I have to wait until November for its release.
But I’m supposed to be sharing my thoughts about the cover, not about the book itself. So….
This cover is super cool. I love the color, the fonts – especially the one used for Olivia’s name – and the code that is streaming down the page. Very Matrix-y. And I love the tagline.
While I know I’ve seen the male cover model somewhere before, I think the female model is very pretty and I like that she’s looking off to the side but you get to see her entire face.
I love the blue, cool tones. And the fact that some of the code is blurred, which makes them look like sparkling jewels in the background.
I might have liked to see the author’s name just a bit larger, or in a different font, to give more weight to the top and add balance, but other than that I think it’s a pretty awesome cover. And if I didn’t know about the book before seeing it, it would definitely have made me check out the description to find out more.
Well, no matter how I discovered this book, I’m so glad I did. Because, as I said above, it sounds awesome. But that’s what I think, what do you think?
He tilts my chin up so my eyes meet his, his thumb brushing lightly across my lips. I close my eyes. I know Z is trouble. I know that being with him is going to get me into trouble. I don’t care.
At least at this moment, I don’t care.
Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation. But her natural ability with computers catches the eye of Z, a mysterious guy at her new school.
Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite—break into a few bank accounts, and voila, now Z has enough money to purchase and drive a motorcycle. Follow his lead, and Olivia might even be able to escape from her oppressive foster parents.
As Olivia and Z grow closer, though, so does the watchful eye of Bill Sykes, Z’s boss. And he’s got bigger plans for Liv…
I can picture Liv’s face: wide-eyed, trusting. Her smooth lips that taste like strawberry Fanta.
It was just a kiss. That’s all. She’s just like any other girl.
Except that she’s not.
Thanks to Z, Olivia’s about to get twisted.
