... in books

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by GReads! and this week’s question is:
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?

Well honestly, the first thing that grabs my attention is the cover. I love beautiful covers and when the cover appeals to me and love reading thick books. The thicker the better!
The third thing I am looking at is the blurb at the back cover and if all those three things apply the books should be mine.
When looking at blogger’s reviews I judge books by their cover and then by the reaction bloggers had to this book.
These are some books I bought because of the beautiful cover and the interesting blurb.


  1. Ooh your cover of A Discovery of Witches is different from mine (which was blue). I love a good cover too, but the summary/ description is what will make me take home a book.

  2. Beautiful covers will ALWAYS grab my attention. I absolutely live for finding books with gorgeous covers -- and gorgeous stories to match!

  3. Covers, TOTALLY. Also, I share your love of thick books! It makes me think that there must be a good time in store for me. :D

    I hope you'll drop by and enter my giveaway to win one of three ARCs! :)
