Cover Love: part 64 – Silhouettes in the dark

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 64th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature ‘silhouettes in the dark‘  on their covers.

Given the topic, most of these titles are thrillers.

Most of these titles I chose only for their covers.
I’ve read four of these – two of which were favourites of mine.
Many more 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.

    So many silhouettes, so may similar looking covers. I have read a couple of these, but not heard of a lot of them.
