I love the idea of this meme, so although the creator put this on hold, I decided I wanted to carry on with it on my blog anyway. Check out Sailing Through Book’s blog above. I am choosing a book by random from the YA Releases of February 2019 Goodreads List. Feel free to join in with your own interpretations of the cover!

When I First Saw You Synopsis
This is a book about a teen girl with a secret that’s about to explode. She has been hiding the truth for a long time, but when she falls head over heels into a new relationship, she soon realises sometimes it’s very difficult to hide things from the people you love.
YOUR SECRET’S SAFE … UNTIL IT’S NOT
Ivy is the shy artist type and keeps a low profile—so low that she’s practically invisible to everyone at Belfry High School except for her best friend, Harold. As sophomore year begins, Harold takes up a hundred activities, leaving Ivy on her own. Luckily she’s found a distraction: the new anonymous art-sharing app, VEIL.
Soon Ivy realizes that one of her classmates is the VEIL user who needs new paintbrushes … and another is the one visiting the hospital every week … and another is the one dealing with their parents’ messy divorce. While she’s too scared to put her own creations on the app, Ivy thinks of an even better way to contribute—by making gifts for the artists she’s discovered. The acts of kindness give her such a rush that, when Ivy suspects Harold is keeping a secret, she decides to go all in. Forget gifts—Ivy wants to throw Harold a major party.
But when all those good intentions thrust her into the spotlight, Ivy’s carefully curated world is thrown into chaos. Now she has to find the courage to come out of the shadows—about her art, her secrets, and her mistakes—or risk losing everything and everyone she loves the most.
Okay, I got the whole secret thing and the fact that it’s hard to keep secrets from the ones you love. But I never considered the themes of art that seem to be so central to the novel. I think the cover and the title were clues to the secret keeping though, and the way the title is displayed on the cover also gives away the theme of art, but I must have missed that bit.
