Cover Love: part 30 – Bare feet dangling over water

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 thirtieth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature bare feet dangling over water on their covers. A summery topic that might add some summer reads to your TBR.

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 31:
“Ferris Wheels”

or… revisit any of the previous installments of

Cover Love – some of which I’ve updated recently

    Interesting – it doesn’t look like any of these are horror, which when I picture bare feet dangling over water I think of something scary coming out of that water!
    And also interesting… I think 2 of these covers might use the same picture with some photoshop changes: The Friendship Pact and Heat Wave. One of the ankles has a gold anklet on in each picture, but in one it’s on the girl on the left and in the other cover it’s on the girl on the right.

      Well spotted! The foot with the bracelet is tucked closer to the other foot on “The friendship pact” but I’m sure that is just a PhotoShop change as well.

    Not a cover trend I’d noticed before, though it has to be said, not my kind of book. Gender seems to be hugely relevant. is it that men just don’t have pretty feet? Huck Finn and pals on the raft is all I can think of, and that’s not an actual book cover?
