Cover Love part 106 – Split Faces

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 106th Cover Love post, I want to share some books that I’ve found with split faces on their covers. These are predominately thrillers, but a few other genres are present as well.Have you read any of these titles?

Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 105 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    Another great addition to Cover Love, Lynne. I have read The Last Wife and Lies She Told and liked them both. I never would have though there would be that many covers with split faces, but again, you proved me wrong. It seems they are mostly, thrillers or suspense stories.

    Another great list of covers. Again, I haven’t read any of these, but they sure make a kind of creepy-looking blog post (creepy in a good way!)

  7. I can see why books with this type of cover tend to be thrillers. The pictured people have something to hide.

    Lynne, I don’t know how you find all these! A superb selection and I had no idea there were so many and haven’t read a single one?! For most I’m not sure the split face works too well – what do you think?

    I just saw that you’re also updating your posts, that’s a great idea and wonderful dedication.
