TGIF: Book Appeal

TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by Ginger of GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.

This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:


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?

My Answer: Shallow answer comes first, I know, but a cover will often grab my attention first and foremost.  However, a gripping summary will definitely make me want to read a book.  I think it really depends on the genre of the book to determined whether I want to read it.  Recently, I was caught off-guard by a lovely and wolfish cover for a new title by a well-known women's literature writer, but when I read the summary, the cove definitely had nothing to do with the actual story held within the pages.  Just goes to show I shouldn't always judge books by their covers, but luckily I know to read the summary after being captivated by the cover. ^_~  Here are some samples of great books with great covers.
