Cover Love: part 71 – Bluffs

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 71st installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that have bluffs on their covers.  If I had my choice of ideal home location, it would be on a steep bluff overlooking the Atlantic ocean. For that reason, I am always personally attracted to book covers that feature bluffs. And if it is a house on a bluff, then I’m sure to check it out.

These seem to encompass a wide variety of genres.  Enjoy!

I read four of these and most of the rest 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.

And don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 70 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    Even though some of these covers are dark and foreboding, I love them all. I have not read a single one, which I can not believe. I don’t even think I have any on my TBR and when I saw the title of this post, I was sure I would have. Well, the next hour is going to be spent researching some of these books. Great post Lynne.

  5. Oh, definitely The House at Sea’s End and The Vanishment, cover wise that is ☺. It is not only the picture but also the font type that create the attraction…

    That is one impressive collection of bluffs! Being a big Ann Cleeves fan, I am currently re-reading Thin Air. Mine has a different cover though. I have also enjoyed Elly Griffiths’ Ruth Galloway novels including The House at Sea’s End, but have not picked up the latest one in the series. Thought the themes were beginning to wear a bit thin.

    • Like you, I’m a huge fan of Ann Cleeves and Elly Griffiths. As I’ve only read the first three novels in the Ruth Galloway series I cannot speak to your comment about the themes wearing thin. Thanks for commenting on my Cover Love post. ♥
