Cover Love: Part 62 – Under glass domes

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 62nd installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature glass domes on their covers. These books cover a wide variety of genres. Surely one of them will speak to you…

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.

    I think this is the first time that I can say, I don’t think I have read any of these books. I do like many of the covers though. How do you come up with these ideas for Cover Love, Lynne?

    I love these covers and really like glass domes (and snow globes, which remind me a lot of glass domes). I don’t think I’ve read a single one of these books, but might add one or more to my TBR list. Thanks for the pretty post. 🙂

    My goodness – I’m amazed by all these glass domes! I’ve read The Taxidermist’s Daughter (my cover doesn’t have the glass dome) and whilst I didn’t love it, because of all the gruesome detail about taxidermy which I found absolutely sickening, I found it compelling reading. I’ve got Crooked Little Lies on my Kindle but haven’t read it yet.

  5. The glass dome image always makes me think of vulnerability for some reason. I hadn’t noticed this growing trend but I bet I see it everywhere now!

    I had a look through the introduction and description to some of these books, and noted how many have a different cover depending on the format, paperback, hardback and e-book, “Truly Madly Guilt by Liane Moriarty” is one example.

  7. I never would have thought there were so many ‘under glass’ covers!

    Not the End of the World tempts me, but as much for the author’s name as the cover. On the hand, the cover of Goddess of Suburbia is what draws me to that one.

  8. For some reason I find the glass dome images very compelling, though my favorite image is the one at the top of the post. I wish it were a book.
