Cover Crush: Sisters on Bread Street


I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.


This cover immediately caught my attention on Goodreads. I loved the soft colors popping out of the muted background. I loved that I could look at this cover and instantly know that the story was set somewhere in England (Leeds) and it was likely during wartime (WW1). This one was definitely worth a second glance and after checking out the synopsis, it was added to my wish list.

What about you? Any book covers capture your attention this week?

Cover Crush is a weekly series that originated with Erin at Flashlight Commentary. Click over to see the cover she shared as well as one at A Bookaholic Swede.

  1. I agree, great cover. And I am all about covers and labels. For example, even though I don't like beer much, I am always bringing home bottles for my husband to drink so I can save the label because it is clever or cute. (He would love it if I would pay more attention to what is inside the bottle! LOL) I know it is considered "shallow" by some to judge by the cover, but there are a lot of us out there who do, so it's fun that marketers recognize it! If a book has a good cover, I will at least pick it up and read the synopsis on the back, which is more than I would do for a plain covered book about which I didn't know anything.

    1. We are alike! I should be more ashamed than I am to admit that the cover is so important in my decision to read a book. Especially if it's an obvious self-pub. But, it's true. The cover has to grab my attention before I even read the synopsis.
