Book Cover Challenge

I saw a couple of book cover challenges doing the rounds on Goodreads and really fancied doing something like that, but in my usual casual way – just for fun. I mixed and matched a couple to make a nice list for myself. No time-frame, though I want to keep making progress!

All books that I have read from July 2017 onwards are eligible and I can only use a book for one category.
