Cover Love: part 38 – Locks

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

Locks lend themselves well to dustjacket art. Locks can keep secrets IN, or keep secrets OUT.  All books contain secrets of one kind or another…

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!

 Are you tempted by any of these covers?

Stay tuned for Cover Love Part 39:

  8. I love this concept! It’s also reminded me of the brilliance of the Eyre Affair – I haven’t seen that cover for it before.
