Cover Love: part 63 – Exploding flowers

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 63rd installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature exploding flowers on their covers. Who knew that this would even be a ‘thing‘ ?

Most of these titles I chose only for their covers.
I’ve only read one of them, but a few of them are on my TBR.
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.

If you have a few minutes, visit any of the previous installments of
Cover Love – some of which I’ve updated recently.

    Who would have thought there would be so many covers with exploding flowers. When I read the title, I though what??? I have only read one of these, but have a couple on my TBR. Yes, exploding flowers seem very sinister. Another great Cover Love post.


  4. And two share the same image

    Love the covers. I’ve read 3 of these books. Fatal Voyage by Kathy Reichs, HIM by Clare Epson, and The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers and none of them are warm and flowery.

    I consider flowers to be warm and delicate, however the book titles indicate some sinister reading. Great covers.
