Cover Love: part 45 – Hands, palms out

They say you can never have a second chance to make a good first impression. A book’s cover does just that – gives a first impression. A good cover can make a reader pick up a book. A bad cover can leave the book at the very bottom of a dusty pile.

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 forty-fifth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature hands with palms out on their covers.

Hands with palms out can mean several things.  Stop, stay away, supplication, surrender, a wave, or often in these cases, a plea for help…

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. it always amazes me that you can find so many covers for some of the most remote of subjects–hands–palms out–for heaven’s sake. good job!

    Ah! they seem so repetitive when you put them one after another and see them together
    But I really like the Bitter – last one. It makes me want to read it!

  7. Lovely to see two novels I read on your list: A Tap On The Window and The Other Twin. Both great books. I still have K.A. Tucker on my readlist as well :-). I had no idea there were so many hands on covers!

  8. ‘The Day She Can’t Forget’ looks an enticing novel. Just from the cover alone, I want to find out what this is about.
