Cover Love: part 60 – Tables

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 60th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature tables on their covers. I chose this topic because of the summer season – when I entertain the most.

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.

    Cool theme! I would be interested to read ‘Lydia’s Party’ to find out why the table is set for a dinner party in the snow! It would be a bit cold!

    When I saw that your cover love was tables, I said to myself in that questioning voice, tables?? Wow, was I surprised. I can’t believe there are so many covers with tables on them. I have actually read 4 of them, but several of these have attracted my eye, so i will have to check them out now. Being a person who often selects books based on the cover, you add to my TBR every time you do one of these wonderful posts. Thanks Lynne.

  8. I’ve only read the Maggie O’Farrell from this selection. One thing I love about these posts is seeing the covers from Canada. It’s so interesting the different styles in the different countries. Are they different again in the US do you know?
