Cover Love; Part 9 – Umbrellas

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 ninth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you some books from my Goodreads lists that feature umbrellas on their covers.
Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list, and some I’ve chosen solely because of their covers.

Cover Love 9 Umbrellas

Having an umbrella on the cover is a great ‘hook’ for a fiction book. 

The word umbrella comes from the Latin word “umbros” which means shade or shadow.  Shade and shadow generates mystique.

Also, umbrellas shelter us in bad weather.

(just like books! LOL)

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

You might just find your next favorite book!

    The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was one of the best books I have read this year.

    Great collection of books with umbrellas! Have you read them?

    The Dark Days Club also has an umbrella. 🙂

      Thanks Megan. I only added books that were on MY TBR. I don’t think “The Dark Days Club” is my kind of book as the words ‘demon hunter’ in the blurb put me off.

        It’s cool. I just wanted to mention it because when you said umbrellas, that’s the first book that popped in my head lol. I wanna read it soon. 😀
