#CoverCrush: The Funeral Dress

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.

I have always been fascinated by the tools and accessories that accompany sewing. Rows upon rows of colored thread. Pins lined up in neat rows along a hem. Ribbons and trimmings. The title of this book suggests a dress that is specifically worn to a funeral. Is it special-made? Is someone a dressmaker or seamstress? The needles, thread and scissors would indicate that sewing is involved, but how? 

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 Court, Flashlight Commentary, A Bookaholic SwedeLayered Pages, indieBRAG, A Literary Vacation.
