It's been awhile since I had a pure thought post so here we go!
Oftentimes, unless I happen to have already read something by an author, I judge a book by its cover and title. This means, I only read reviews on books that have already caught my interest this way.
If the reviews and synopsis are good, then I am properly excited about the book. Perhaps I should be doing things the other way around, with looking at reviews first, but there are so many reviews and books out there that I need to have a quicker way to decide. This quick judgement of mine is now helped a bit by rating aggregation from goodreads especially with books which don't have interesting covers or titles.
What do you guys think? What gets you excited?
