The Cover I Most Envy:

There’s so many to choose from since I’m a lazy bum and am doing 2 weeks worth of covers in 1 but I have to say that my favorite is by far Her Cold Revenge. This cover is perfection! Normally I wouldn’t go for a cover with not one, not two, but three different title fonts but with this it completely works. I also love that there’s not an actual girl on horse and it’s just an outline. It is very simple but it is so gorgeous to me. I know absolutely nothing about this book and I know it’s pubbed by a smaller press but if I were to see all the releases listed here in the store, Her Cold Revenge would be the book that I buy. Bravo Switch Press cover people.
