Musing Mondays #17

By Should Be Reading!

This week's musing asks…

Would you choose to review a book if its description sounded interesting but the cover was terrible?

I have done this many times! :)

I know, I judge many books by it's cover, but if it actually sounds interesting, I want to give it a chance.

As I've mentioned, I usually look for three things: Great cover, intriguing synopsis and good reviews. And even though I'm quite picky, I can do with just one of these things. Absolutely breath taking cover sometimes overruns bad reviews, and intriguing synopsis overruns fugly cover.

My to-read- list in Goodreads (837 books) probably proves my point! ;)

Love your answer! Eye catching covers usually are my selling point, but most times I am pleasantly surprised at what is on the inside. :)

Here's mine:

the cover may make me pick it up, but it can not make me read it or not read it.

That's true. If there are good reviews for the book I usually trust that even if the cover is horrible.

I do have to say one thing after reading many of these. That is something that I had forgotten ... sometimes a great cover just covers a really bad book and vice versa... but I suffer from evil librarian PTSD HERE is mine!

I admit I'm a cover snob. If the cover isn't great the book tends to sit in my TBR for a longer time.
