    • I know we are not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover but I have to admit, it doesn’t hurt if the design is appealing. You definitely hit the jackpot with all your covers! 💗

  2. Oh so many to choose from … what to do, what to do?!?! Here’s to one or two snow days (max!) and LOTS of beach days in 2019 to catch up on my reading. I love posts like these, thanks Jen!!
