Cover Love: part 90 – Roads

In my 90th installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about roads on book covers.  Since this pandemic is causing many of us to have ‘staycations’, you might find yourself  ‘on the road’ this summer.

In this compilation, you’ll find country roads, town roads, paved roads, dirt roads, coastal roads and more. All of them hopefully leading us down the road to a great read.

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

    Wow, so many to choose from and I am sure there are many, many more. I read both of Joy Fielding’s books on this list. I always enjoy them, but they are not my favourites. I just read Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton and really enjoyed it. As always an enjoyable post, Lynne, and one that usually has me adding more books to my TBR once I peruse the ones that grab my eye.

    I love the cover of Anthill!


  4. I’m not surprised you had a wealth of these to choose from. By the way, I liked that “Run You Down” novel. I read that and another one of her books in that series… don’t know what happened after that.

    That’s a whole bunch of roads 😂 But I missed Vanda Symon’s Containment (Orenda Books edition) 😉

  6. Hello, Lynne. The only one I’ve read is the Anne Tyler novel. I had no idea that so many books have roads on the cover. Good job, as always.
