Wednesday’s Word = SALT (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 “SALT“. I know there are many books with the word ‘salt’ 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 )

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.

    The Salt Marsh cover is my personal favourite. I love how so many of them remind me of the sea

    Wow, not a word I would have thought would be in so many titles. I have read one and have one on my TBR. I have not heard of any of the others, but some of the authors I have read before, so of course I will now go on a hunt for some of the books. Another wonderful addition to your series Lynne. Of course I did a search and found even more, who would have thought.

  4. Who’d have thought there would so many titles with salt in them?


  5. Well I’d never have thought that salt would be a common word for a title. Haven’t read any of these ones at all. Some very appealing covers though.


  6. That’s such an interesting way to put together a reading list! I might have to try it.


  7. I would have never guessed Salt was such a popular title trend! I’ve only heard of a few of these, but haven’t read any yet.

  9. I have five of these on my TBR list and one of them – The Last Salt Gift of Blood – is the cover that intrigues me most in this post.

    Saltwater plays such an important part of life here on the coast, especially this time of year. My four-year-old grandson proudly told me when he was trying to float in his bath last week that it was ‘fresh water’, a distinction I would never have known to make growing up in Ontario.

    First time I haven’t read something on these posts! Although I do own salt to sea …just need to read it!

  11. As a cover ‘The Salt Path’ stood out for me … now having read the reviews … and albeit it being non-fiction … it is of a part of England I grew up in … and of hard times that can be cruel in a place of beauty … I’m drawn by instinct to read this…
