They said,” Don’t judge a book by its cover,” but believe me. I’ve known lots of people who love to read and most of them love to judge books by their cover. I don’t know why, but I’m one of those picky reader :D. It feels like you can tell the story good or bad by their cover. And believe me, most of the times, it’s true!
This one is almost like the cover, but more accurate I guess. From the synopsis I can tell what the story about. Is it an ordinary story with very common idea or it is a fresh story with a brand new idea, like Percy Jackson or The Mortal Instrument I guess?
3. Popularity / Community Review
This one is really important for me. I’m not a big fan of buying a book randomly. I mean,I often do that, but sometimes I try to at least know what is the book about. And I can tell it from community review. Usually, I buy book from my Goodreads and friends recommendation. There are also times when I interested in a book ( Read : Cover ) and I check it first on the internet before buying it .
I love fantasy and YA books. I always give them higher expectation more than others books. But I always think more when I’m going to buy book with genre that I don’t really fond of, like melodrama or adult-erotica. But I’m not really often do this. I love to try kinds of books and most of them are good. For example, Beautiful Disaster. It’s out of my comfort zone, but I still found it amusing.
It’s not really important actually. Like I’ve said before, I love to try new kinds of books. But of course, I will buy more books that written by my favorite author. Because when I’m reading, I think the one that make the book interesting is not the idea but how the book is written. Every authour have different ways if telling the story. So if I love a book’s writtings, chances are I will look for other books that written by the same author.
Well, that’s it I guess. Do you love to do it they I do it? Thank for coming guys!
