Cover Love: part 39 – Cemeteries

Since it is Halloween, I thought I’d reblog one of my previous Cover Love posts that I’ve recently updated.


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 thirty-ninth installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you books that feature cemeteries on their covers.

Cemeteries lend themselves well to cover art. They are perfect to give an ominous feel to mysteries, thrillers, and horror titles.

And it IS October after all…

Some of the following books I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list,
and some I chose only for their covers.

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?

If you have a few minutes visit any of the previous…

    Covers with cemeteries creep me out somewhat. I have only read one of these and it was a cozy. I don’t even have any on my TBR. Guess that is just a personal preference.


    • Interesting Carla. I love cemeteries – especially old ones. Going for a walk through an old cemetery is so interesting. I’m sure you think I’m weird now, right? LOL

        I enjoy walking in cemeteries and checking out grave markers and trying to figure out what happened to people. I don’t find that strange at all. Not sure why the covers give me the creeps. Now I sound strange.

  4. Cemeteries do make for striking cover images. I’ve been told that anything can potentially go on a cover with the exception of two things: snakes and human feet. Both creepier than cemeteries I think.


    • Oh Sarah, I think you’ve given me great ideas for next October’s Cover Love post. I know there are a lot with snakes, but I haven’t seen too many with feet – maybe toe tags?


      • Oh, yes! Stiff by Mary Roach has feet I think. The snake and feet thing came from a conference session with Tess Gerritsen who mentioned that her publisher wouldn’t even put a medical caduceus on the cover of one of her medical thrillers because too many people are afraid of snakes.

        • I used to work as a public library cataloguer. Whenever I catalogued a book with a snake on the cover, I had to turn it backwards on the shelf. The girl who covered the books was afraid of snakes and even pictures of them would set her off. She always got someone else to cover those…. LOL

  5. Wow I never would have guessed there were so many books with cemeteries on the cover!
