Cover Love: Part 17 – Chairs

They say you can never have a second chance to make a good first impression. A book’s cover does just that – gives a first impression. A good cover can make a reader pick up a book. A bad cover can leave the book at the very bottom of a dusty pile. Dustjackets entice the reader to enter a different world. Covers are, after all, the way the publisher ‘hooks’ the reader into choosing one book over countless others.

In this, my seventeenth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature chairs on their covers.
Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list,
and some I chose only for their covers.17-cover-love

Some, perhaps, will now be on your TBR!

Chairs can symbolize many things – and also many emotions.  Chairs can comfort after a long day OR they can be used as instruments of torture…

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

    Wow, never thought there would be that many covers with chairs, amazing. Great job finding all of them.

    Love this series! I think it’s interesting that only a few covers have comfy chairs. All the rest are hardbacks, maybe because the characters will find themselves in uncomfortable situations?

      Very astute thinking! Thanks for your kind words about my Cover Love series. Many more installments to come. I’m trying to do two every month as they take a lot of time to prepare.

    Lynne: some lovely covers! I have spent some time reading bits and pieces on Good Reads, and I did place some on my TBR list, too. Some of the covers are very intriguing; especially the one with sprigs of violets.


  6. Love this series and I’ve never registered the chair theme before – I shall be on the lookout now ☺
