Wednesday’s Word = ROAD (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 “ROAD“.  I know there are countless books with the word road in the title, but I’m featuring 20 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 )

Reading a book is a bit like taking a road you’ve never been on before.
You never know where you’ll end up!

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 or HATED it?

Please let me know in the comments.

  1. I loved 84, Charing Cross Road, as so many others have. I’ve also read Coffin Road but, unlike Joanne, I didn’t care much for it.

    The cover of Road End intrigues me (and. I admit, the fact that it’s Lawson).

    Thanks for another great post!

    I have read a few of these and Coffin Road is on my TBR. I read Crow Lake and it was hard to stick to. I don’t know if I will try another Lawson book, but then again, she is Canadian, so I should. The Last Road Home looks and sounds interesting, i might see if I can find it at the library. Another great post Lynne.

    This is an interesting concept for a blog series, I look forward to seeing more posts. Out of the books on this post, I would be tempted to read ‘Night Road’.

    I loved Mary Lawson’s first two books – Crow Lake & The Other Side of the Bridge and have re-read both of them several times. Somehow though, Road Ends just didn’t have the same appeal.

  8. I’ve read Coffin Road by Peter May and loved it! I’ve been to Lewis where it’s set a few times now and knowing the area really brings the book to life for me.
