Cover Love: part 57 – Window blinds

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 57th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature window blinds on their covers. And the feel they gave you is very different depending on whether you are looking in, or looking out…

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!

Two of these covers have been added to my “Seeing Double” post.
Can you find which ones?

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.

If you have a few minutes, visit any of the previous installments of
Cover Love – some of which I’ve updated recently.

  1. Anyone who says they don’t judge a book by its cover, even a little bit, is flat-out lying hahaha. I tend towards very simple covers, though – I like block colours and plain text. I don’t think that’s a common opinion, but I guess I’m just weird like that 😉


  2. Love this as always. Ashamed to say I hadn’t already spotted window blinds as a theme.

    Oh Gosh, Shadow Man is one of my all time favorite books. I got the chills just seeing that cover again! The other one that really catches my eye is Remember Me This Way. Great post–I never noticed all these window blind covers before!

    As soon as I read the title of your post, I knew The Woman In the Window would have to be included. I agree, they do look mysterious and suspenseful. I will have to check out the blurbs on a couple of the ones that look interesting before adding them. Another great post Lynne.

  7. Even though I don’t read many thrillers, the woman in the window cover intrigues me every single time I see it. I think it is stellar.

    All these sneaky blind-peeking people – fascinating what is popular now. Have you done curtains yet?!
