Cover Love: part 55 – Chain link fences

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 55th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature chain link fences 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.

Cover Love – some of which I’ve updated recently

  1. I had no idea there were so many books with chain link fences. They tend to represent books with bad things happening? Crime? I wonder if I have any on my shelves. I have not read any of these. Look forward to seeing more categories of covers.

    Another great edition of Cover Love. Who would have though there would be so many covers with chain link fences on them. I have read three of them, my favourite being One Perfect Lie. A few of the others are on my TBR.


  3. Hello there, Lynne. I think I like the second to last cover best. There’s something ominous about the fingers sticking through the fence’s holes. Overall I’m amazed that so many books have chain link fences on their covers.

    Bye —


  4. Another great edition to your wonderful series! I have Dead Woman Walking on my tbr no idea when I’ll get to it though.

    A chilling feel to this collection, Lynne! Tell me (because I’m too lazy to look back right now) have you done a cover love featuring cats yet? (She asks, hopefully 😉 )


  6. I’ve been noticing how many covers feature the back of women wearing coats. A few pop up here too!

    Well, here’s another one of your Cover Love entries for which I have not read one of the chosen books! I have to admit, I’m not a fan of the look of chain-link fences myself, so none of these covers overly appeal to me (with the exception of “Who Are You, Trudy Herman”…I think it’s the title and the yellow that catch my eye) and I’m not sure if I’d pick one up based on its cover alone (& without maybe having read an excellent review of it by your good self!). I’m sure this is a case where my judging the book by its cover might be to my detriment!


    • Sharon Bolton’s “Dead woman walking” was a very good read. You’d be cheating yourself if you dismissed these covers entirely.♥

        I will take that under advisement Lynne! Since we tend to like a lot of the same books, I’ll take your word for it. Actually, that cover did appeal to me a bit…especially on a second look.


  8. I had no idea they were used so much but I’ve read 3 of these! The Silent Children is my fav one and I really loved the novel as well!

    Saving Sophie and The Silent Children are what stood out for me from your selections..

  10. I love the way you’ve grouped covers by a certain item. I keep a file of covers I think look alike more on an artistic level, but this is fun.

  11. I find pictures of chain link fences to be intimidating – and to indicate a type of book that isn’t what I usually read. Great idea for this post!
