No, you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover but nonetheless I do like covers and I like to give them something of a spotlight.  On the first Friday of the new month I’m going to look at the covers for the books I’ve just read and see which was my favourite for the month.

The covers for my January reads were:

There are some fantastic covers from last months reads!  For impact Medusa’s Web immediately stands out – it’s just dark and scary.  I think the Guns of Ivrea and Goldenfire are really lovely, they’re so colourful and just completely grab your attention.  Monstrous Little Voices – I love that cover, the font and the characters really appeal to me and it’s a fantastic read too!  I think my favourite has to be Medusa’s Web – that is a book that I would definitely pick up and want to own!

Those were my January covers – if you have any particularly gorgeous covers you want to share then let me know.
