Wednesday’s Word = Gone (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.

This week I’ve chosen the word “Gone“.  I know there are countless books with the word gone in the title, but 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 )

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.
You might just find your next favorite book!

Of course “Gone Girl” was not the first novel to use this title word. Gone alludes to a missing person or thing which is a popular plot theme for thrillers. But not all of these titles are thrillers… 

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

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

Please let me know in the comments.

    I have read several of these and enjoyed them. Once again, they look like a lot of thrillers. I am intrigued by the cover, A Long Time Gone. Have you read that one?

    I find the cover of Haylen Beck’s book to be intriguing. It’s very spare and mysterious!

    I can think of only 2 books that I’ve read with the word “gone” in the title – Gone With The Wind and a short story, Gone Fishing. I do have a few on my TBR pile though, but none of the ones you have listed.
