in Fiction by

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: great covers can get me to read almost any genre. There’s something about a beautifully designed cover that just reaches out to me and I want — no, need — that physical book in my hand.

The stories that live on the pages between the covers are just as beautiful, poignant and rich. So judging by these five hot new beautifully designed covers, I already knew I was going to go crazy for the tales they tell. Boy, was I right!…

Heat Index: 5 Hot New Books Deserving of Their Own Category

in Fiction by

Have you ever had a completely random pile of books that you’re dying to read but don’t know which one to start first? That was my dilemma this week for Heat Index. Each of the books that I picked is fabulous in its own right, but I just didn’t have a category that each one fit in. That is, until I had five of them and the category made itself!
