Monsters of Templeton Book Cover

When I saw this book cover, I was like....'WOW'! Sort of like that. =)

The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff

Well, what do you think about it?

When I see an interesting book cover, I will want to read the book. How about you? Do you judge a book by its cover? The book, for instance, has a beautiful cover. But, we don't know if the story inside the book is just as nice as the outside, do we? The only thing left to do is to read the book!

Here is the book description from

"The day I returned to Templeton steeped in disgrace, the fifty-foot corpse of a monster surfaced in Lake Glimmerglass." So begins The Monsters of Templeton, a novel spanning two centuries: part contemporary story of a girl's search for her father, part historical novel, and part ghost story, this spellbinding novel is at its core a tale of how one town holds the secrets of a family.

In the wake of a wildly disastrous affair with her married archaeology professor, Willie Upton arrives on the doorstep of her ancestral home in Templeton, New York, where her hippie-turned-born-again-Baptist mom, Vi, still lives. Willie expects to be able to hide in the place that has been home to her family for generations, but the monster's death changes the fabric of the quiet, picture-perfect town her ancestors founded.

Even further, Willie learns that the story her mother had always told her about her father has all been a lie: he wasn't the random man from a free-love commune that Vi had led her to imagine, but someone else entirely. Someone from this very town. As Willie puts her archaeological skills to work digging for the truth about her lineage, she discovers that the secrets of her family run deep.

Through letters, editorials, and journal entries, the dead rise up to tell their sides of the story as dark mysteries come to light, past and present blur, old stories are finally put to rest, and the shocking truth about more than one monster is revealed.

This book is available at Acmamall (they do have everything, don't they???) and it costs RM87.98!!! way! No way!
