The Twilight/Wuthering Heights Cover

Just a little p.s. on book covers...

Maybe you've already seen the new cover for Emily Bronte's star-crossed lovers story of Wuthering Heights. Published in 1847, let's just say it's not still on the top 10 list. Here is an old cover. Several exist, but here is one I grabbed. Not likely to get that many teens picking it up, right?

Now check out the new cover.

If you've paid any attention to book covers lately, you might notice it has a certain similarity to a wildly popular series about two star-crossed lovers,
Bella and Edward. Yep, here's the Twilight cover. Look also at the little star on the Wuthering Heights cover. If you can't read it, it's just a reminder
that it's Bella and Edward's favorite book.

I'll be very interested to see how this affects sales.

This cover reminds me more of the cover of Evermore. But I'm still shocked they're trying to latch it to Twilight.
