I received three books in the mail last week - two were from LibraryThing wins and the third was from Simon and Schuster.
From LibraryThing I received A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay (July's win) and The Case Against Owen Williams by Allan Donaldson.
The third book, Zombies vs Unicorns, is an anthology of short stories edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier.
I admit I don't care too much for that cover! My copy has another band of blue with a running unicorn across the bottom of the book but it still doesn't look much better than the one depicted here. Why are the unicorn and zombie figures so small in the surrounding black? That cover just doesn't work for me. I have read the first two stories (The Highest Justice by Garth Nix and Love Will Tear Us Apart by Alaya Dawn Johnson) and though they are wildly different, they were good reading.
