#CoverCrush: It Happens all the Time

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.

The red dress behind the torn cover is eye-catching. But, why? Why is the paper torn? It would appear to be ripped apart out of anger. The dress was worn by a woman, so what happened to her? Did she tear up a picture of her dress? Was she attacked or assaulted? How does this dress relate to the story? 

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, A Literary Vacation, Of Quills and Vellum.
