Cover Love part 107 – Scissors #CoverLove #fictionophile #BookCovers

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 107th Cover Love post, I want to share 31 fiction books that I’ve found with scissors 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 106 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    Another great post for cover love, Lynne. I haven’t read any of these, but will check my TBR as I think I might have a couple of them to read. I agree with Kelly above, I would have expected a knife on that cover as well.

    The UK hardback edition of A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier also has a pair of scissors on it. ✂️

    I’m always confused when I see the cover of In My Dreams I Hold a Knife, I would expect the cover to have a knife, not scissors 🤷🏼‍♀️😄
