Cover Love: part 73 – Eggs

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 73rd installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that have eggs on their covers. Easter is just days away, so I thought it was an ideal opportunity to showcase this topic.

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

I’ve read two of these and three 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.

And don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 72 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    When I saw the title, eggs, I thought really. But wow, so many covers and the stories are all so varied too. I have a couple of these, Danielle Steel and Jodi Picoult, but haven’t read them. Some interesting ones here to check out. Another great cover love post.

    Egg theme for Easter – very appropriate. Amazing how egg covers can be cosy, sad, melancholic, sinister, hunger inducing and anything in between… Happy Easter!

    Great seasonal theme! I guess any nursery rhyme books with Humpty Dumpty on the front would fit.
    I think the only one of your covers I’ve read is Chocolate. It’s a gorgeous cover.

  5. I do find these posts you do so interesting. The title for this one made me wonder how many books you’d have found as I couldn’t think of a single cover with an egg on… then I read your post and realised that I’ve read (or have on my TBR) so many of these books! It’s funny how some themes I notice are recurring on covers and others I just seem oblivious to.

    I’ve read Left Neglected and The Cruelest Month and I don’t remember eggs on the cover! ….I just went back to check and my covers of those books are different…no eggs!
    This is a fun post topic!

  8. So many gorgeous covers! I loved The House We grew Up In, I have a copy with a very different cover on it but I think I prefer this one.

    Adorable post just in time for Easter. Happy Easter! Before this post if you asked me about eggs on covers, I would not be able to name off one single cover! Great post 🙂

  12. Hadn’t thought about eggs being common before! I think I’ve only read Chocolat and Too Many Cooks from your selection. Too Many Cooks was my first ever blogtour!
