Cover Love: part 34 – One eye open

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 my thirty-fourth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature one eye open 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!

    I think this might be the actual first (or maybe second…) instance in your Cover Love series that there hasn’t been at least one book that I’ve read (or have on my TBR list…)! Love this series and always look forward to the next one. It’s a great way to be introduced to books and authors. Thanks so much for putting in so much research, time and love into this series and your Top-Notch! blog.

    Awesome!!! I absolutely love your cover posts! My favorite is The Girl in the Snow! I love that cover.


  3. Creepy but brilliant as always! I can highly recommend Touch by Claire North.

    I love this series. It is interesting to see how many covers use the same theme. I am sure that there are many more that would fit here. Great variety of books shown.


  5. good grief! i’m beginning to think the real message here is that there is nothing you can think of that hasn’t been tried–countless times before. while several of my covers were totally original (i.e., my grandfather’s paintings of sailing ships), tall ships were certainly not unique to covers.
