Cover Love: part 95 – Bathtubs

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. What is so appealing about ‘bathtubs‘ on a book cover? Why is it chosen so frequently? You be the judge.

Things to note!

Three of these covers use the same photo!

Well there you have it!  Lots and lots of bathtubs.  Some inviting… and some not so inviting.  Were there more than you imagined?  Have you read any of these titles?

Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 94 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    I would never have thought there would be so many covers with bathtubs on them. Interesting that the one cover is used three times. I was looking at the Allspice Bath just this week. Now I have more to investigate. Awesome addition to this series and so glad to see a new one. 😁❤


  4. Great as always. I love those that have used the same image but then played around with it.


  5. There are definitely some there I would NOT want to take a bath in! Who’d have thought there were so many books with baths on the cover…
