Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Denise Dechene:

Everyone has their favorite authors, books and tropes. What makes you pick up a book by a new author or try a new trope? Is it reviews, the cover, the blurb or word of mouth?

1 thought on “FOR READERS: What Grabs You?”

  1. I read about 15 ARC’s a month. When I receive an opportunity for a new-to-me author, I first read the blurb, then the genre and finally I research the reviews the author has received on previously published works.

    Based on all of those things, I decide whether or not to read it!

    (P.S. I always review the books on Goodreads. Also Bookbub and Amazon if they’re ‘up.’)
