Cover Love: part 40 – Broken wine glasses

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 fortieth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature broken wine glasses on their covers.

Folks who know me, know that I’m partial to a lovely glass of wine on occasion (but who really needs an occasion?)

A glass of red pairs nicely with a novel of any genre.

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?

  1. Is it weird that I like all the broken most? I had no idea there were so many wine glasses on covers, even if I saw most of these covers before!

  4. Isn’t it funny how images seem to stick around for a while. I suppose a broken glass is indicitive of danger which fits with the thriller genre…

    Great post! I hope you enjoyed a glass of wine while doing this research 😀. I had to laugh reading this post. As a former book marketer I attended many cover meetings with publishers, editors, designers and the sales team where we spent hours arguing over cover images. So much goes into finding the right cover and we didn’t always get it right. It was important to do image research as we often found another publisher had already used the same stock image on a similar book. Then there were times when the author was given way too much of a say in the cover and we ended up with something really difficult to work with in terms of creating print and digital ads and bookstore material. Such an interesting topic!

    My first book’s original cover featured a wine glass spilling over, so its an image that will always be near and dear to my heart, even if the mom in me can’t help thinking about those poor floors.

  9. I love that the wine has spilt or the glass is smashed, and that makes me glad I don’t drink wine haha, from the titles displayed, wine has dark connotations! 😂
