Yay :D! It’s back, sorta… here is a new topic for this week, please feel free to leave your comments :)!
What gets you to read a book? Do you look at the cover? Do you just pick up a book because of the summary, or reviews? WHAT?!
Even though people may disagree, covers are important (to me), but not the most important thing to get me to read a book. If a book has an AMAZING cover, I will most likely pick it up to read the summary! The summary really gets me to read a book, if I like how it sounds BAM I’ll give it a shot! Mostly books with magic, fantasy, science fiction type books are the best for me, but sometimes I go out of my little comfort bubble for cute sounding contemporary! If a book has that… here it comes… love triangle (not done well)…. or mysterious “cute” boy…. I sometimes set it down O.O! Don’t be mad, please! It’s just that we need more books that a girl fawning over a boy’s looks and stuff… it really bothers me how many YA books (and books in general) deal with this. THAT DOESN’T MEAN I WONT GIVE THEM A SHOT OKAY? I do, I give them a read through and decide 🙂
What makes me want to read a book? Well, I guess mostly the cover and summary. If there’s a book that draws my eye I’m more likely to pick it up when compared to a duller, plain book. The summary helps as well. If you tell me that there’s magic and destiny I will love it (most likely!) Oh! Also I LOVE books with mermaids! For some reason they just draw me in like crazy. What makes me dislike books? Love triangles, the mysterious guy, entwined fates, she’s destined for blah blah. Things like that! The overused words, the shady new kid whom you suddenly trust. An uncontrollable force heading your way…The English language is full of words, it would be nice to try a few new ones!
So what about you? What makes you want to read a book :)?
