Cover Love: part 78 – Big Hats

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 78th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to pay tribute to summer by showing you books that have big hats on their covers.

With apologies to my male followers, I think you’ll find that most of these novels can be classified as women’s fiction.  You’ll also find several historical fiction titles.   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.

    First I need to say that I absolutely love that picture of you and your grandson. So adorable. You continue to amaze me with this series of posts. So many covers with big hats. As I started looking I got an impression of what type of book has a hat on the cover, then more came up and I thought nope, very different. There are a few on here I will be checking out. The Dressmaker of Dachau has me very intrigued.

  9. Hi Lynne. When I’m out in the Sun I don’t wear a big hat, though maybe I should. But I do wear a cap.

    Good job as always.

  10. Lovely photo of you and your grandson! I loved Anita Shreve’s Sea Glass and because of it I’m always on the lookout for sea glass when I’m on a beach. The UK cover I remember doesn’t have a hat on it though. If this link works, this is the edition I read.

  12. I was surprised to not see any Elin Hilderbrand books in your list, as she is the first person that comes to my mind for big,beachy hats! I admit that I prefer looking at these sorts of books to reading them, usually, though big society hats from the 20s are more up my ally.
