In this episode of Cover Candy (The Gold Ones) we’re looking at books with luscious gold covers.

You know how you try to schedule things ahead of time (like blog posts), but somehow manage to forget clicking the “schedule” button?
Welcome to my life…

So we’re going to pretend it’s last Friday today, even though it’s now the following Thursday. Details, amiright?

This episode is dedicated to things that glitter, things that are warm, things that are splendid!

As usual, I can’t vouch for the contents of the books represented below. We’re only here for the eye candy!
