#CoverCrush: Saving Amelie

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 was the reason I took the book for review. I instantly knew it had something to do with WW2 because of the colors and clothing. The cover also immediately invoked peril and secrecy. And when you read the story, it is apparent that this young girl's life is in danger and the woman pictured with her, must take her away from the SS father who would have her killed for her deafness.

I enjoyed this book and you can see my review of Saving Amelie here.

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: A Bookaholic Swede, Flashlight Commentary.


  1. That is a great cover; and it sounds like an even better story. I totally judge books by their covers which is why it took me so long to read the Stieg Larsson books; I thought their covers were really ugly. But the books were good. At least the first and third were. :)

  2. It was a great story. And, I totally judge covers. I haven't read Larsson, mostly because of subject matter, but also because the covers are horrible. Girl on the Train had a terrible cover too. Of course, I didn't like the story either.
