Top 10 of 2018 Day 2 - Best Book Covers of 2018 with Giveaway


Hope you're having a great Christmas!  Finally I have a day I don't work!  I have family get-together with my dad's side today, so won't be around to check any comments out probably till later tonight.  

Since I'm still not seeing any of the hosts from last year sponsoring this year, so I am not going to link to them today.  Today the topic is the best book covers of 2018.  I always try to pick from only the books I've read, so while there may be a lot of other books with maybe better covers, these are my favorite covers of the books published this year that I read.  No particular order.
