Welcome to week one of our 2017 Reading Challenge.
This week we are forgetting the old adage of "never judging a book by its cover". Stunning, beautiful, striking, horrifying or intriguing. No matter what comes to mind take a chance and let the cover decide.
Need a starting point? Here are some covers that we found…
MOR Romance: Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
SIN NZ Fiction: Archangel’s Shadows by Nalini Singh 594.147: Spirals in time by Helen Scales
LEV Mystery: Killing Cupid by Laura Levine
RYA SF Fantasy: The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan GOL Romance: Discovering Stella by K.M. Golland
KAZ Historical: The Painter of Souls by Phillip Kazan
