#CoverCrush: Sold on a Monday

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.

As a parent, this cover just breaks my heart. Who is this boy? Why is he alone and sad? The book title suggests that he is sold. Did his parents sell him? Why? Too many other children? Not enough food or money? Who purchased him? A family who will love him or someone who will use him?

The mom in me just wants to scoop him up and snuggle him and find out his 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 Court, Flashlight Commentary, A Bookaholic SwedeLayered PagesA Literary Vacation.
