#CoverCrush: By Any Name

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.

Without ever seeing her expression, you can sense that the woman on this cover has attitude and presence. The colors of her ensemble are striking against the pier and ocean. Clothing would suggest late 1940s or early 1950s. Who is she? Where does her strength and attitude come from? 

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