Cover Love: part 50 – Books

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 50th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature books on their covers.  Hey – you know we all love books, so to mark the 50th post, I thought I’d celebrate our bibliophilia.

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?

Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

Please let me know in the comments.

    I could happily read all of those books, just because of their covers! I hadn’t realised how much books on the cover could attract me!

    I agree with Atiqah, my favourite as well. Who could resist books on a book. I have actually read about 6 of these ones. I am like Susan, I definitely judge a book by its cover. Great post.

    I’ve read a few of them, but I really loved Anita Shreve’s book “Fortune’s Rock.” I remember not wanting it to end.
