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.

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.
