Cover Love: Part 3 – Gates

NOTE: This post was last updated on May 13, 2023

I find myself attracted to certain kinds of covers.  In this, my third installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature gates on their covers.
Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list, and some I have chosen only because of the gates on the covers.

Having a gate on the cover is a great ‘hook’ for any fiction book. What is fiction but a gateway to other lives, experiences, worlds…?

Are you tempted by book covers that feature gates?

Just click on the cover to read the book’s info from Goodreads.

  1. I did not realize there were so many book covers with gates on them! I agree they are definitely reader hooks. That’s Cover Love for you!

    These covers, give or take one or two, are WONDERFUL, and so are the titles.
