Cover Love part 101 – Keyholes

“Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.”― Ruth Bader Ginsburg

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.

For my 101st Cover Love post, I want to share some books that I’ve found with keyhole shapes on their covers. Reading fiction is like peeking through the keyhole into other lives.

Have you read any of these titles?Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 100 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

  2. Waw keyholes are popular and I totally get it, it’s a very strong image on a book cover! I immediately thought of Ruth Ware’s cover too! Great list Lynne!

    Peeking through a keyhole always makes me think of a book full of secrets. The only I have read is The Turn of the Key, but these covers do call to me. Another wonderful addition to Cover Love Lynne.

    I have to wonder how you found so many books with keyholes on the cover! Well done. They are all such beautiful covers too.


  8. I haven’t read any of these, but did read Incognito by Katie Delahanty which had a cool keyhole cover and was very good.
