New Layout!

Hey all! As if it's not obvious, I've decided it was time for a change and gave my blog a makeover. It's a radical difference from the dark red and grays, so I'm a bit weirded out by it, but I'll get used to it. I'm kind of paying homage to some of the ladies of YA covers. At first I had a header with a jumbled mess of Tenner covers on it (and it was horrible. Trust me) but I think I succeeded with this one.

Thoughts? Is the header hideous? Links too bright to see? Any suggestions/comments/complaints? Let me know. You guys are the readers, and I'll do anything to make the blog more easier for your eyes!

  16. I LOVE your header, I think it's lovely!
    I'm not sure about the background thought, it kind of hurt my eyes. The colors are great but I feel the stripes are kind of aggresive, just my opinion tough =P

    Great work on the header <3

  18. Thanks for the comments, guys! Hopefully the circus stripes will grow on some of you. If not, I'll try to find an alternative! :)

    Tynga, there is no book between Dark Flame and Eyes Like Stars. The girl in the middle is a part of the Dark Flame cover!

  21. I absolutely love the header! Such a cool mashup - I'm so impressed!

    The only thing I notice that might be a "problem" is the difficulty of seeing any black text on the background (like the date). But it's so minor it's almost not worth mentioning.

    Everything looks great. Nice job!
