#CoverCrush: The Ruins of Us

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.

While I didn't love this book, I loved the cover. Dark and mysterious, it brings thoughts of the Middle East. The green scarf is a bit of brightness against the dark of the woman's dress. She's looking down and away; is that from shame or regret? What has happened to her? What will happen to her? 

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