Cover Love: part 85 – Paper Dolls

In my 85th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about paper dolls on book covers. I think this is a curious choice for cover art, but strangely it is somehow very effective in some cases.

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!

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