#CoverCrush: The Secrets of Midwives

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 Netgalley. The viewer's perspective of standing behind the bicycle, peering around the bend in the wall and watching the street scene provokes a feeling of secrecy. After reading The Secrets of Midwives, the purpose of the bicycle becomes more clear. The cover also refers to a time in the past; appropriate since the book follows three generations of women.

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 gorgeous cover she shared along with A Bookaholic Swede!
