>> woensdag 7 december 2011 – Dutch covers
Two new Dutch covers to talk about. Both of these book came out in November, 2011.
Wilde Haren by Gerie Smit:
Joke and Suuz (Such Dutch names, lol) grow up together in the little, suffocating town in the North. When Suuz gets a chance to work in the city, she goes. Joke stays behind and lives with her nosy parents. They both have different lives and their friendship grows apart. Joke starts using drugs to escape her problems and doesn't know that Suuz has big problems of her own in the city.
Vintage Verliefd by Petra Drenth:
Nikki never had any trouble finding a fun college, getting a job or even getting someone to fill in her taxform. Nikki loves her life, shopping all day is just too perfect to give up. Her boyfriend, Raymond, decides to start a relationship with the ambitious, too perfect Tatjana and dumps Nikki. Nikki has no where to go. She finds a cute little house in the big city and gets a job at the new age shop from her aunt. Nikki learns how to take care of herself and everything seems to get better. Until Raymond and Tatjana decide to live and start their new live in the house in front of Nikki's.
I love, love the cover of Wilde Haren (The first one, left). It's so beautiful. The girls look like woman from the fifties and also the seventees if you look at the dresses. I just love it and seriously the next time I'm walking by a bookstore someone should stop me. I have a really big need to get this book. Vintage Verliefd (The book on the right) sounds hilarious. It sounds so funny and yes, it's on my wishlist. Love the cover too. It feels vintage.
