Poll #845392 Questions unrelated to one another

(For my serious consideration.) If you were in the fiction section of the bookstore, or even the YA urban fantasy section specifically, which title would you be likelier to pick up?

Heaven Universal
The Angel of Death Valley

(Just because I'm curious.) How high do you set your thermostat for regular at-home hours?

60-61 F / 16 C
62-63 F / 17 C
64-65 F / 18 C
66-67 F / 19 C
68-69 F / 20 C
70-71 F / 21 C
72-73 F / 22 C
74-75 F / 23 C
76-77 F / 24 C
78-79 F / 26 C

Body type would have something to do with that last question, I'm sure; but I don't think it's as simple as "big people are warm; tiny people are cold." In fact, a lot of skinny people are skinny because they have metabolisms that burn like rocket fuel; therefore, they are comfortable at lower room temperatures than the average person. In addition, I'm betting it has to do with what you're used to. Those from toasty parts of California really can shiver and pile on sweaters when it's 62 outside. I have seen this personally. Meanwhile, Alaskans often wear shorts when it's 45. Again, personal witness.

Yep - they both sound very like YA titles, which is good, because that's what you (being Molly, not shebit!) are aiming for. If you want to create a kind of crossover, though, the title may need a bit of tweaking.

Hard to say what I'm after, I guess. I'm assuming it would be shelved under YA, but am hoping that adults would also enjoy it. (I didn't dumb down the vocabulary or plot complexity or anything, as some YA books seem to.) So perhaps a more mature title is in order. Must think on the subject.
