My Top 10 Front Covers Of 2017!

to 10 2017Hi there lovely bookish folk,

Today I would like to share with you my most favourite 10 book cover’s of books I’ve reviewed this year! (If you didn’t catch yesterday’s post I talk about my top 10 reads of 2017! which you can check out Here)

As you all know I’m a sucker for a gorgeous and eye-catching book cover! (I go on about them a lot!!!!) For me personally it’s the first thing that caches my eye in a bookshop or when looking online; which leads me to then reading the blurb. (that is unless I already have a specific book in mind!)  The front cover is the first thing a reader see’s and has some impact on whether the reader pick’s it up or not.(unless they are looking for a particular author or book) Of course it’s not the sole reason for a reader choosing said book, but I think it’s defiantly part and parcel in choosing a book.

Now the front cover’s I’ve chosen are because they really caught my eye and practically want to jump in to the picture in front of me. It took me age’s to whittle it down to 10, but few I did it! So without further a due, let the my top 10 front covers commence…    (please note they are in no particular order)
