Hi everyone! We are now halfway through our 5th Annual Reading Challenge Month and we’ve been having a blast! If you want more details on the event itself, including specifics on how to enter for prizes, check out the kick off post.

This week we take on a new reading challenge, Judge a Book By Its Cover Week. I love this challenge because I am a big believer that a great cover can sell a book (and sadly a bad cover can often sink one). So for this week, we are celebrating beautiful book covers! For this challenge, we are asking folks to choose a book because they LOVE the cover. So grab a gorgeous book and join us for the challenge! (and if you need help finding a book, check out our monthly Favorite Covers posts for some inspiration!)

Cover Week is sponsored by Riptide Publishing. They are donating a choice of THREE audiobooks to two different winners (or ebooks if preferred)! Woo hoo! So a great prize this week for readers who join in with us by commenting on challenge posts or reading along with their own challenge books and writing a mini review on Friday (check out all the rules and details on the kick off post).

Here is what we are reviewing this week for the challenge:


  • Now You See Me by Lynn Van Dorn
  • Hurricane by Laura Taylor


  • Masquerade by Joel Abernathy


  • The Wanderer by Dahlia Donovan
  • The Musician and the Monster by Jenya Keefe


  • The Beach House by Angelique Jurd
  • Creature Comfort by Rob Rosen


  • Today by R.J. Scott
  • Blood and Bones by B.A. Stretke


Be sure to check out these reviews and leave comments on the post for entries to win the audiobooks from Riptide Publishing. Plus, read along with us and write a mini review on Friday and earn even more entries! And all entries enter you to win one of the fabulous grand prizes of overflowing book bundles sponsored by some incredible authors!
