Cover Love: part 51 – Tiny houses

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 51st installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature tiny houses 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?

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

Please let me know in the comments.

    I was surprised to see so many tiny houses on covers. How do you come up with your ideas? A lot of these books are thrillers, so maybe that is why people get creeped out. I think they are kind of cute.

  3. Well that’s a little weird – I seem to have an aversion to tiny houses – I couldn’t bring myself to open the link to any of them!

    Ah, I really dig these covers! ❤

    There’s another book called The Gingerbread House, but that was written by Carin Gerhardsen. It also has a tiny house and is super creepy 😀

    Don’t think I’ve read any of these. The tiny houses obviously don’t call to me! It’s amazing how many you have managed to find.

    I had no idea there were so many covers with tiny houses! Some of these are so pretty, though. The ones that really jumped out at me were A Game for All the Family and The House We Grew Up In and The Hummingbird’s Cage. I’ll have to check some of these out!

  13. Hello Lynne.

    If I had to pick just one cover, I’d go with the one from Jane Shemilt’s book. It is both stately and foreboding.

    Take care —

  14. Another great selection, with crossovers to include cupped hands and jam jars!


  15. I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed The House We Grew Up In, The Gingerbread House, Daughter and Skylight Confessions 😊

    Who would have thought there could be so many covers featuring tiny houses! Of those I’ve seen, within your covers series this is the most surprising to me yet!
