Hi guys! As part of Xpresso Book Tours, I'm fortunate to show you the cover art of Ten Days, a New Adult/YA crossover sci-fi romance. The cover was done by Jen Naumann. Without further ado, here it is:

Book Description:

Ten Days by Olivia Mayfield
Publication date: May 2013
Genre: New adult/YA crossover sci-fi romance


Seventeen-year-old Cally isn’t like the others. In her society, the Machine caters to every whim, ensuring people don’t have to leave their pods. But Cally and her best friend Marshal find themselves drawn to how things used to be, when people lived on the surface of the earth and relied upon manpower, not technology. When physical contact wasn’t uncivilized, and love was normal, acceptable, embraced. Cally tries to swallow down her increasing dissatisfaction with the "rules," as well as her rapidly developing feelings for Marshal, a task getting harder each day.

Then, things start going downhill, fast. Food is spoiled. Air grows musty. The population panics about the dysfunction--is it sabotage? Anarchy? But Cally and Marshal discover the truth: The Machine, the answer to all their problems for longer than anyone can remember, is breaking down. Now, these two have to risk it all to save themselves and the people they care about...before their entire world destroys itself.


What I think of Ten Days:

Cover: Pretty! I like the colors - how vibrant and light they are at some parts of the cover. I don't know, exactly, if there is symbolism here. But I'm assuming there is. Would love to know more about this!

Synopsis: Reminds me a bit of Delirium by Lauren Oliver but more futuristic. I love the forbidden romance theme in YA. Although this one is not a result of difference in race or class but instead it's a result of the rules. It seems to me that in Ten Days, everything that makes a human well, human is taken away. The super ease of technology dominated over what is simple and human. I'm excited for this one!
