Cover Love is hosted by Bookshelvers Anonymous
One of my favorite authors ever is Meg Cabot, and one of my favorite books ever by her is The Boy Next Door, so it’s perfect that the cover for that book is one of my favorite covers ever.
I just love this cover so much, mostly because of the Harlequin Great Dane. I adore animals and have always wanted to own a Harlequin Great Dane, so I love how there’s one on the cover. (Plus, the Harlequin Great Dane’s wearing a red collar with an adorable heart charm.) I also love the girl with her hair pulled back (wish I could keep my hair back like that) and the fun rainbow lettering.
The Boy Next Door is told entirely in emails/notes. Here’s the description:
