“Wink didn’t cry or anything. I don’t know why I thought she would. The Bells never cried. That’s one of the reasons they were impossible to bully.”

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the cover for April Genevieve Tucholke’s Wink Poppy Midnight is? I absolutely adore it. The novel itself is probably one of the oddest books I’ve ever read, still the writing was flawless and the characters really interesting. You can read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Every story needs a hero.
      Every story needs a villain.
      Every story needs a secret.
      Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

  1. Yes, yes, we must indeed take a minute, or two, to gaze upon this gorgeous cover art. Oh and the velvety, soft touch feel of the books is so silky. I succumbed to the temptation of this book at Target. Now, I’m a happy owner of another as-yet-to-read book. What can I say, my iron will turns to mush too Alica, mush! 🙂

    Wink is a name? 😀
