It's live!! Cover Reveal: 26 Kisses by Anna Michels + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Welcome to today's cover reveal, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 26 KISSES by Anna Michels, releasing May 24, 2016 from Simon Pulse. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Anna:

 
Hey there, YABC! I’m jumping-up-and-down excited to reveal the cover for 26 KISSES! When I first saw this cover, I fell deeply in love (and I may have kissed it a few times myself) because it’s everything that I hope the book is--bright, fun, wild, and a little messy. I’m incredibly grateful to the design team at Simon Pulse for creating such a pretty face for my debut novel to go out into the world in, and I hope you think it’s as drop-dead gorgeous as I do!
 
~ Anna Michels (26 KISSES, Simon Pulse)

About the Book
 
Breaking up with her boyfriend is not how Veda planned on starting her summer. When Mark makes it clear that it’s over between them, Veda is heartbroken and humiliated—but, more importantly, she’s inspired. And so she sets out on the love quest of a lifetime: use the summer to forget about Mark, move on, and move up. All she has to do is kiss twenty-six boys with twenty-six different names—one for each letter of the alphabet. 
 
From the top of the Ferris wheel at her hometown carnival to the sandy dunes of Lake Michigan, Veda takes every opportunity she can to add kisses (and boys) to her list, and soon the breakup doesn’t sting quite as much. But just when Veda thinks she has the whole kissing thing figured out, she meets someone who turns her world upside down.
 
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Anna Michels’s debut is the story of one girl who realizes that moving on from the supposed love of your life means taking a chance—and having the courage to love again.

Cover is seriously one of the best because who doesn't like different shades of lipstick! The synopsis really makes me smile because the female lead seems to have such a weird personality!! I love it.

The cover and title would definitely catch my eye and prompt me to pick it up off the shelf. The description would ensure that I take it to the register for purchase.
