Yearly Wrap-Up 2017

Yearly Wrap-Up 2017

Today I’m joining in with the Cover Characteristic meme hosted by Sugar and Snark.

Trains are often featured on book covers to symbolise journeys and new beginnings, they are especially popular for mystery and thriller novels. Keep reading to see my favourites. These are the ones that most appeal to me: I like how you can see the girl’s reflection in the train window. It seems like this would be a novel about looking […]
