Cover Love: part 74 – Picket Fences

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 74th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that have picket fences on their covers. Fences can be built to keep people out, or keep people in. In this assortment, I’m sure that some of these are serving both purposes.

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

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 73 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    I love this entry. So often an item gives off a certain vibe, but this one is all over. I love how fences are used on so many different genres. I have read a handful of these, The Flood Girls, Broken Promises, Stay Close,and Last Good-Bye. I have a few here that I will be adding. As always, I love this series Lynne.

  5. It’s terrific how you keep coming up with cover concepts. You’ve found so many different themes. It won’t be long till you do #100. You’ll have to throw a big party for that one!

    Bye till next time —
