Cover Love: part 80 – Flocks of birds

In my 80th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about flocks of birds that often grace the covers of books.  This time of year it is common in Atlantic Canada to see birds gather together in flocks. Some small, and some large murmurations.

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.

These titles 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 79 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    Ah I’m a sucker for birds and yet bird covers don’t seem to stray too much from each other. They all have the eery flock thing going for them, except for a few that employ Seagulls or other birds. But since I’m a bird person a did click on a few, namely The Illness Lesson (due out Feb 2020 how fun!); The Oracle of Stamboul and Raven Sisters though I actually went straight to the first in that series, Rain Girl. I’ll link back should I reference or read any of these. Thank you! 😀

    Birds like that on the cover do not entice me at all. I think since watching The Birds as a youngster, they have always creeped me out. There is a good selection here, but I skimmed them as I started to get a creepy feeling.

    I’m not keen on birds in general, but I like the look of the cover of ‘Carrion’. It has a sinister look to it, particularly as the bottom part is red, like blood! I have nominated you for a ‘Sunshine Blogger’ Award!
