Cover Love: part 27 – Empty swings

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-seventh installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature empty swings on their covers.

Swings, when empty, can give off an ominous vibe, or can evoke a melancholy mood.  Alternately, they can be inviting and nostalgic. Here you will see examples of both and many, many, more.

Some of the following books 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!

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

You might just find your next favorite book!

  1. I love your imagination. Few people would ever have thought of this.

      Ha-ha thanks. Some people kindly say that I’m a ‘visual’ person, while others more accurately say I’m anal. I like your description. I’ll go with imaginative. 😉
