There is an old English proverb that states “You can’t judge a book by its cover”.
I have to disagree. Perhaps we can’t judge, but we can certainly use covers to choose books. Anyone who says they don’t is fooling themselves. That being said, if I really love an author and their new novel has a hideous cover, I will still buy it and read it. But… for the most part, it is the cover that is for me the first ‘hook‘.
I find myself attracted to certain kinds of covers. In this, my second installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I’d like to show you the books on my Goodreads lists that feature windows on their covers.
Some I’ve already read, some are on my ‘to read’ list.
Having a window on the cover is a great ‘hook’ for any fiction book. What is fiction but a glimpse through a window into someone else’s life?
Just click on the cover to read the book’s info from Goodreads.
