Do covers speak to you? Covers with DOORS always call out to me regardless of their genre. I will scroll Goodreads, Amazon and Audible and slow my roll as soon as I see a door. Check out some door covers and let me know what you think. Please tell me I am not a freak.
Maybe it’s because doors hold secrets behind them. People, families and histories.
Some doors hold magical worlds behind them….
I love this door with the light glowing from within. It creates both warmth and mystery.
Holiday door delight me with their promises of good cheer…
Or covers that promise a door… with a keyhole, keys or door knob……
Don’t you love them. Honestly, if a cover has a door on it I have to stop and read what it’s about. Chances are good I will read it.
What about you? Anything about a cover that speaks to you?
I never thought about it but wow, yes, I can see the appeal. I love the idea.
I never thought about it, but sure, doors are cool! And covers always speak to me, I know I know, we should not judge a book by its cover but I always do. Cool covers speak to me, pretty covers makes me long

I like covers with doors too, especially if there’s a character on the cover opening the door. I want to follow them through it.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January totally catches my eye! I do love covers, and had fun picking out my favorites for my Top 10 of 2019 post in the link below!
Oh, I can see why covers with doors speak to you — in particular Rosamund’s Gate. That is such a striking one.
Illustrated book covers speak to me. Maybe because I really love art and I enjoy drawing book covers, and illustrated ones look drawable to me 😀 Lots of YA covers have started to become illustrated in style and it makes me want to buy them all…

I do love doors on a cover too but my favorite covers are more atmospheric like through a fog or a snowstorm. Happy New year Kim. I’m finally feeling better after surgery but it was one heck of a week!
I love that these covers speak to you. I wish that they spoke to me and you are not a freak! Omg, I love the stories behind a beautiful cover though.
You know, I’ve never thought about it but books with doors or keyholes on the cover are often intriguing!

oh I LOVE covers with doors on them!!! Its so fascinating what covers can connect with to the reader right? Hope you had a great Christmas darling.
I’m always superficial so a pretty cover makes me want to try the book
You are not nuts. As soon as you started explaining I knew I had similar quirks. I love silhouetted figures against sunsets/sunrises and shadowy figures running away through streets or forests etc. Yes, doors always make me wonder what is behind them.
I like covers with faces. I hate the headless torso book covers. It always reminds me of Highlander movies where he’s lopping off their heads.

Oh very cool post! I don’t look at covers so much with most ebooks, eARCs and audios. But I love some of them.
Doors speak of sinister and mysterious things so I do understand your fascination..?
Covers are the last thing on a book to catch my eye. Titles are my thing.
Doors don’t catch my eye but a cover filled with lots of color does. I am an artist on the side, painting psychedelica. I must have bright colors in my life.

Hmm I’ve never really thought about it I’m really not sure if there is any one thing, the title is generally what catches my eye first before the cover art
