Cover Love: part 29 – Butterflies & Moths

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-ninth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature butterflies and/or moths on their covers.

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!

Stay tuned for Cover Love Part 30:
“Bare feet dangling over water“

or… revisit any of the previous installments of

Cover Love – some of which I’ve updated recently

    I find a lot of them surprisingly ineffective – too fussy. A butterfly is such a beautiful image, a very simple colour scheme and no other imagery would be more striking.

    Amazing how a butterfly or moth can be used to express such different sentiments and themes. I never would have thought they could be used to evoke suspense but they are. Great finds.

    So pretty. I haven’t read any of these and it is interesting how most of them are using the fragility and beauty of the butterflies metaphorically. (I am guessing here)


  4. Another great collection

  6. So many beautiful covers! I’m not sure if I have read any books with a butterfly in the cover. I’m curious now…

    It’s quite sinister to see them all like that. Something about non-fluttering butterflies on book covers must send a chilly signal to the brain

    That’s a great tagline on The Trap.


  10. Amazing you find so many covers in the current theme. Good job!
