This week's musing at Should Be Reading asks....
Would you choose to review a book if its description sounded interesting but the cover was terrible?
I recently did just that for the book tour of a book. It was for this book "Gods and Fathers." Not only do I not care for the cover art, but I didn't like the title either. However, after reading the books description it sounded interesting, so I signed up for the book tour, read the book, even though it was out of my comfort reading zone, enjoyed the book, and awarded it four stars. My review.
If I had seen "Gods and Fathers" at a bookstore I would have passed it by and never bought it because of the cover, I just didn't like it. However, I have been known to buy a book because I did like the cover. Example..."Gilding Lily" by Tatiana Boncompagni, I just loved that cover.
So tell me, do you choose a book by the description or the cover art?
