It's so difficult to pick which to vote for each week but finally made a decision!

No questions at all on this one I'd never heard of Orphans of the Tide before but as soon as I saw the cover and read about it on Twitter I pre-ordered immediately That's a great cover

That was a really tough decision and I was equally split between Orphans of the Tide and The Ghouls of Howlfair! A great set of covers, I could only hope to be half as talented!
