Hello, book lovers! 💕
It’s kind of cliche to say that I read a book based on its cover, but it is something that I guiltily do. There’s a good chance that if the cover draws me in, I’ll read at least the summary on the book jacket. And if I like what I read in the summary, then I’ll consider picking it up.
Most of the time, once I get passed the cover of the book, I’ll check Goodreads to see what other people are saying about the book. Not that I always have that determine if I pick up a book, but there’s a higher chance that I’ll want to read it more. If the people I trust on Goodreads really enjoyed a book, I know there’s a possibility that I’ll like it too. And vice versa. If they don’t like a book, I would be less inclined to read it.
But I might still pick up a book if it really interests me. If it has most of the keywords I look for in a book, then there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll pick it up.
What are some reasons you pick up a book? Are they the same as mine? I’d love to know in the comments below!
