Cover Crush...Safe from the Sea


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.


It's pretty much a given that I'm going to love any cover that has the ocean on it. I can rhapsodize well and long about my love of the ocean. The title implies that the ocean can be dangerous and the ocean on this cover is rugged with waves crashing over rocks. A rocky shoreline can be treacherous to ships and reading this story is the only way we will find out why the sea is feared.

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

Cover Crush is a weekly series that originated with Erin at Flashlight Commentary. If you want to check out some other terrific bloggers and what their Cover Crush posts look like, you can do that here: The Maiden's CourtFlashlight CommentaryA Bookaholic SwedeLayered PagesindieBRAG, A Literary Vacation.

  1. I tend to pick on net galley by covers also. But weirdly, when I do that, almost all of them are British or Australian! For some reason, at least to me, the U.S. covers seem less appealing!

    1. The one thing that saves me on Netgalley is that so many of the books I want to request are non-U.S. and so I get denied. You're so right, sometimes the non-U.S. covers are more appealing!

  2. The ocean on a cover is beautiful. The ocean on this cover led my eyes to the title. So, for me it's the cover and the title this time.
