Cover Love: part 92 – Front Doors

In my 92nd installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about front doors on book covers.  During this pandemic, it seems everyone is hibernating behind their front doors – so it seemed an apt topic.

I’m at home for a few days to catch up on laundry etc., so as I have dependable internet here, I thought I’d take the opportunity to compose a post that is heavy in graphics. A feat that I wouldn’t dare try at the cottage where the internet is sporadic at best.

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

    I don’t know how you kept it to this amount. It seems there are a lot of books with doors on the cover. I have a lot of these on my TBR and have read some: Hello From the Gillespies, House Swap, Caught, Life After You and When No One Was Watching. I enjoyed them all, but they are all very different.

  4. Red doors are popular, aren’t they?

    I’m attracted by the stunning photo on October Light, although I hope it has a happier ending then Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

    AND I find that I have The Turner House on my Kindle – and I feel in the mood for a family novel. Thanks for the reminder.

    Great selection. It seems like an invitation to knock and discover the secrets behind all those doors.
    I have recently read “The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler”. I enjoyed the read, and felt the rising anxiety of Gemma, the main character, becoming near hysterical. The police began to suspect her of killing her husband. Occasionally I just wanted her to stop, she kept on about her background and her husband so much it became tiresome. However, I was impressed with her guts at the end, in my view she made the right choice. However for me, the story’s end did not leave me feeling a satisfactory sense of justice.
