I find myself attracted to certain kinds of covers. Covers are, after all, the way the publisher ‘hooks’ the reader into choosing one book over countless others.
In this, my eighth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you nineteen books from my Goodreads lists that feature lighthouses on their covers.
Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list.

Having a lighthouse on the cover is a great ‘hook’ for a fiction book.
Lighthouses evoke mystique.
Their history is inherent.
They save us in bad weather. (just like books! LOL)
I was brought up just 26 km from the lighthouse on my blog header so they have always been special to me.
