#CoverCrush: The Seven Letters

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.

Everything about this cover speaks to me. I love the vintage feel. The young woman waiting for a train. Hands clasped behind her back, but in anticipation or fear? Luggage stacked next to her. Where is she going? What does the title represent? Is it letters she sent or letters she received? What will we learn as we open the book and begin reading?

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.


  1. Oh, I'm totally a sucker for a great cover! (And, I judge a bad cover!) Like you, a cover pretty much decides if I'm going to request it on NetGalley or whatever.

    1. I wish I could tell you that the cover isn't such a deciding factor, but that's a lie! If I don't like the cover on Netgalley, I'm not likely to even look at the book without a really good recommendation!
