Cover Love part 111 – Ship Rails #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 111th Cover Love post, I want to share 40 fiction books that I’ve found with ship railings on their cover. These titles fall into many different genres of fiction, though most of them fall into the historical fiction and mystery categories. All covers are linked to the Goodreads descriptions.

Have you read any of these titles?

Do you have a favorite cover?

Did you spot the duplicate cover?

Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 110 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    What an interesting choice for cover love Lynne. I would never have thought that ship rails graced so many covers. As I went through your list, I realized that I have read 5 of these books: The Midnight Watch, The Ex-Husband, The German Girl, Surviving Savannah, and Shattered at Sea. They were all enjoyable, but I definitely recommend The Midnight Watch and Surviving Savannah. Another wonderful Cover Love post, Lynne.


  2. Love these post Lynne! Who would have thought they’d be so many covers with ships rails on them?
