something I noticed about the uglies books
« on: January 11, 2010, 04:23:34 AM »



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...

WOW.

See this is why I love talking to other fans of books there is always new stuff that you didn't notice that someone else does. that's awesome.

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?
