This week’s prompt is Top 5 books with keys on the cover. I was able to think of the first one right away from memory, but after that, things got difficult. As in, I scrolled through pages of Goodreads searching for books I’ve read with keys on the cover and came up short. I could think of a few books that seemed like they could have keys on the cover, like The Flatshare which features a shared apartment, but alas, no keys on the cover.
Then, I googled it to see if that would jog my memory. A lot of those books seem to be thrillers, which I don’t typically read, which may explain a bit of why I’m coming up keyless from my own memory and TBR. Regardless, I apparently don’t read a lot of books that feature keys on the cover, which means we’ve got a Top Two Tuesday today.
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
I thought of this one immediately, since it actually has “key” in the title as well as on the cover. I was huge Sarah Dessen fan as a middle and high school student, and while I don’t remember this one being a particular favorite, I did enjoy it.
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
My edition of this book is one of those beautiful cloth covers, and the pattern is a bunch of pink keys. So, this one totally counts! It also happens to be one of my favorite Jane Austen books.
Clearly, I need to know about the books you’ve read with keys on the cover, since I’m coming up blank!
