Cover Love: part 54 – Clotheslines

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 54th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature clotheslines on their covers. One of the joys of spring is being able to hang out laundry again.

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.

  1. Only just caught up with this post. Clothes Lines is one I hadn’t spotted and I have to say quite a few of those books look appealling. Need to investigate them further (like I need more books😂)

    Great covers. I like ‘Maid to Murder’ best; very clever. You’re so right that the cover is important. I often wonder why some books have unappealing (to me anyway) covers. 🙄

    You’re a great detective!

  6. Oh wow, I never realized there were actually so many books with clotheslines on them. These are all so lovely and I like seeing Lee Smith on your list too. I really enjoy her books.

  7. There is something about clotheslines that resonates … all these covers work somehow.

    Oh I do like these! And some of the titles are brilliant! My ‘blog name in books’ post will be up in a few days. I was rather disappointed by the somewhat dour look of the covers. I chose the books from my tbr list – an excel file so no covers in sight. I think I need to start adding titles which have beautiful covers – there are so many these days 🙂 (Then I’ll be ready for the next time I can’t resist a book meme 😂😉
