#CoverCrush: We Were the Lucky Ones

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.

Black and white covers are some of my favorites. Without colors to distract, sometimes we see photographs differently. Here, two people sit on chairs in the middle of what is likely a park. Where are they? The photograph has a vintage feel...is it a world war setting somewhere in Europe? They are facing away from the camera--why? Who are they? What is their story?

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 Pages, indieBRAG, A Literary Vacation, Of Quills and Vellum.

  1. Intriguing questions. It is only when you asked them, that I stopped to think.
