Wednesday’s Word = Lies (Cover Love redux)

This is a new spin on my Cover Love posts. Although I still plan to continue my Cover Love series, I just thought it would be sort of fun to concentrate on title words for a change – instead of pictures.  Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles.  Often these words are associated with a particular genre.  Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

Today, for the third edition of Wednesday Word, I’ve chosen the word “Lies“.  I know there are countless books with the word lies in the title. I’m featuring 20 fairly recent titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love. Some of these titles I’ve read, the rest are on my TBR.

(I’ve limited myself to 20 titles as I tend to get carried away. LOL – For this post I actually had 37 titles and I had to cull 17)

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?

    First off, I really like this variation on your Cover Love series and look forward to seeing which words & covers you will showcase! As to the question if I’ve read any of these books, well, yes, one–Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton…after reading your review!!!! I did thoroughly enjoy this book, so thanks so much for another excellent recommendation Lynne :O)

    This word does not surprise me at all. A lot of great books on that list. I have read a few and I have Lies to read coming up. They are usually thrillers or suspense based on the ones I have read. Another great addition. The covers are all so inviting. I might have to add a couple that I have not read yet.
