Sunday Blog: My favourite book covers so far this year

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite book covers so far this year. Just to be clear, these are books I have acquired this year, so they were not necessarily published in 2018 (although most of them were). Most are still on my TBR list but that doesn’t […]
