Anyone who has spent time on this blog knows that I am an absolute sucker for a gorgeous cover. I’ll always pick up a beautifully designed book, and the cover will sway me to purchase a book about 80% of the time.
I recently read and reviewed Ninefox Gambit, the first in the Machineries of Empire trilogy. It had been getting great press, was nominated for some of the top honours in science fiction, and has a stunning cover. I picked it up despite it not being my usual taste in sci-fi
This book was shortlisted for both the Hugo and Nebula awards this year, and it's easy to see why. Ninefox Gambit is an incredible feat of science fiction -- Lee manages to create an incredibly intricate and complicated, yet entertaining world.

May TBR: my strategy for reading down my physical books and advance reader copies.
