Cover Love: Part 24 – Bicycles

The covers of novels 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 twenty-third installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature bicycles on their covers.

A topic fitting for the spring season.

Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list,
and some I chose only for their covers.

Some, perhaps, will now be on your TBR!

The covers displaying ‘bicycles’ are examples of many different genres.

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

You might just find your next favorite book!

What is your favorite ‘Cover Love‘ series post so far?

Have you found anything to add to your TBR?

I’d love to hear from you in the comments.

  1. So many well-designed covers here.

    This is a fascinating post. Do you own all these books?

      Thanks for your comment about my 24th “cover love” post. No, I don’t own all of these books, I just write about their covers when they display a recurring theme.

    That was so cool.


  3. I had no idea so many titles featured bikes on the cover! I have to admit that Afterward and My Husband’s Son look disturbing. I may have to read more about them ;)5

      You are welcome Carla. Thanks for the encouragement. As you might have guessed… it is a labour of love.

    Great idea for a feature! I’ve never noticed before but bikes do make for a lovely cover.


  6. Another wonderful post! I thought I might see a cover for a WW2 series set in France called The Girl With the Blue Bicycle, it had such pretty covers.


  7. Wow!! I had no idea there were so many books with bikes on the cover! Great post!
