Title: something I noticed about the uglies books

Have you noticed that on each book cover, Tally's face is higher up? This makes me think of her rise to fame which I think was really creative and cool. Was this intentional? Did anyone notice this too?

Wow, that's so icy!
Maybe that was just a coincidence, but it sure makes a lot of sense...

That's so cool. Did you know, that in the first book in the series, if you look closely in Tally's eyes, you can see the photographer reflected in them?

In Extras, too, Aya's eyescreen was inspired by a 1980's video game. I think it's called The Last Starfighter or something.

Isn't it need what you can learn by reading Bogus to Bubbly?

That is awesome.  I had not noticed that thing about the covers...  Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, I find it interesting that humans (in this day and age) tend to find patterns in everything, even if one wasn't there intentionally.  That isn't always a good thing, but is nevertheless interesting.

I hadn't noticed her face being higher up, but the display on her face seems
to look more confident in each cover. And there's always one eye..... o__o

I actually learned lots from Bogus to Bubbly...
Nanos, Hover-levitation, beauty science,  that Radical Honesty is real...
All sorts of things!

And about the covers, AWESOME. I never noticed that before...
