What Are You Looking For In A Book?

What exactly helps you decide to purchase a specific book?

Is it the cover, the little snippet page in the front or the blurb on the back?  Or, maybe it’s by an author that you already love.

Post a comment and let me know what about the book grabs you and forces you to the check-out counter.

Have a wonderful Monday and remainder of the week.

About KD Fleming

KD Fleming's romance writing adventure began on a dare. But the real adventure started after she discovered she had the heart of a storyteller. Writing both sweet and inspirational stories about strong women who could be any one of us, her heroines are sassy and fierce. And once their hearts are engaged by the man who is destined for them, there's no chance the hero won't fall--but what a way to go. KD lives in sunny Florida with her hero husband of 15+ years. She loves music (all things Casting Crowns and OneRepublic), Marvel Movies--ALL things Avengers (ahem, *Robert Downey, Jr*, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo). Oh my! She spends her time taking care of her family, reading, writing, cooking, and coming up with new ideas for fun romance stories.

  1. This is a tough one, Karen. Sometimes, it’s more a recommendation from a friend, or it’s that the book’s by a friend, esp. where ebooks these days are concerned, than blurbs. The last one I indulged in based on a blurb was Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews–and believe me, the blurb does *not* do the book justice. It barely scratches the surface. I’ve found most don’t, so I don’t really rely on them much, except to get me curious. The cover art? hmmm….no, not so much. The only time I’ve ever bought books based on covers is when they’re painted by a specific artist I adore. 🙂 A lot of the time, it’s friends first, recommendations second; but that’s just me.
