Cover Love part 105 – Sneakers

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 105th Cover Love post, I want to share some books that I’ve found with sneakers on their covers. At least that is what I’ve always called them. I’ve also heard them called trainers, running shoes, athletic shoes, tennis shoes, etc… What do YOU call them?

If you are vigilant, you might spot three of these covers that are amazingly similar.

Have you read any of these titles?

Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 104 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    I would never imagine there are so many books with sneakers. What a fun post!

    When I saw the title of this cover love, I thought, no way, there can’t be that many books with sneakers on the cover, guess I was wrong. I have only read one of these, but have a few of them on my TBR. I am not adding any new ones this week, but I will put some on my wishlist to investigate later. I did find the three that were the same, so funny. Great post, Lynne.


  5. I never would have thought that sneakers would be on more than a couple of book covers. Lynne, I don’t know how you do it!

    I didn’t realise that sneakers (or trainers as we call them in UK) were on so many covers! I like them, they are my footwear 99% of the time.


  7. I’m so glad you’re still doing these posts Lynne. I loved The Second Child, it was a really good domestic drama.
