Genre of the Week- Teenage Fiction

This week I chose The Host by Stephanie Meyer, the writer of the Twilight Saga. This is a very popular book amongst teenagers and the crossover market arguably, it was also made into a film in 2013.

The front cover is gloss laminated and a ring of foil has been printed under the eye to make it slightly shiny. This portrays the content perfectly as the wanderers in the book can been revealed by characteristic. The title ‘The Host’ is embossed so that it stands up subtly against the strong image.

The interior spread of the book is well set out, with a poem at the beginning and a drop caps used to indicate the beginning paragraph.

Unfortunately, it looks like the back cover ripped from a different set of books… the Twilight sagas. The colour scheme and font’s do not match the front of the book.

This is a a- format book, which is usual for this genre and it was published by Little Brown in 2008.
