Top 5 Tuesdays: Books with Keys

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.

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!

  1. Let’s see. I have read a bunch of books with key in the title, bit no keys on the cover. The ones I found were The Key to Deceit by Ashley Weaver, Key of Light, Key of Knowledge and Key of Valor by Nora Roberts, Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella, The Ex by Alafair Burke, and Drop Shot by Harlan Coben.
