Cover Love: part 88 – Playgrounds

In my 88th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about playgrounds on book covers. Eerily enough, the playgrounds on these covers are – for the most part – deserted. Sadly similar to the real life playgrounds everywhere during this global pandemic.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 with the majority in the suspense/thriller genre.  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 87 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    Going for walks and seeing all the playgrounds taped off reminds me of crime scenes, even though that is not the reason for it. I have read the Joy Fielding book years ago and have the Marsons book and Mel Sherratt’s on my TBR. You know I will be checking out some of the others. Of course, most if not all of these are thrillers, not surprising.

  2. Empty playgrounds are so evocative – not at the moment, obviously!
