Cover Love: part 47 – Matches

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-seventh installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature matches 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!

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

    From Death Watch onwards I don’t actually like any of them.
    Oddly enough all the ones with pink in them i find appealing. This is just by the look of them…
    I read the Good daughter and it was pretty good. Can’t say the cover has anything to do with the story tho…

    Fantastic covers and a great variety on the theme. I wonder if it is better to have the author’s name at the top and more prominent than the title. I suspect people who know the author look there first and then the title. I noted Peter James and thought I might get that. Just an aside of my pondering thoughts – what attracts the reader, a great cover, an unusual and catchy title or a known author?
    Great post.
