Question: Book Appeal: When you're browsing goodreads, the library, or another blogger's reviews, what grabs your attention to make you want to read it?
I must be honest, as horrible as it is, the Covers. *GASP* I know I know don't judge a book by it's cover. I have read some awesome books with horrible covers and some horrible books with awesome covers. I still love pretty covers and they can definitely catch my attention. The next is the summary of the book. If the book looks pretty but sounds like I won't like it then I won't read it. If I read a summary that sounds great but has a bad cover I'll read it. Content matters to me. I won't read a book just because of the cover but hey we all look with our eyes first :-P
When I am reading a review then I take the review into consideration. Sometimes the opinion makes me excited or if I read a review for a book I want to read but has a negative reaction I take it into account but don't dismiss the book on the account of that one persons opinion. Everyone likes different things and reacts differently, that is how it is. I have loved books that others hate and I have hated books others have loved. I appreciate everyones honest opinion and yes sometimes reviews can make or break the possibility of me reading a book.
