A Random Blog of Everything I like
Something I’ve been thinking about lately: “What words/phrases in a blurb make a book irresistible? What words/phrases will make you put the book back down immediately?”
Hmm….it got me thinking. I have to check someone else’s answer before answering it my self.
The word that will get me into reading a certain book will be ‘Mystery‘ ‘Horror’ ‘Magical world’ ‘True Story’ ‘Mysterious murder’ ‘Science’ ….hmmm I guess that’s all I can think right now. Mostly words that going to increase my curiosity.
The words that will make me avoid book will be ‘romance’ ‘love through time’ ‘chick lit’ ‘spiritual journey’ (this word is the reason why I haven’t finished 5 people you meet in heaven).
But…sometimes I just picked a book up based on instinct despite of whatever word written on the cover
