Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Are you more likely to choose to read a book based on the synopsis, or the cover?
Definitely the synopsis! I’ve seen some very bad covers on very good books. Plus, I feel like there’s a trend recently for abstract covers, using symbols or even geometric shapes, which tell you next to nothing about the story. I usually pick up a book because I’m hooked by something interesting in the premise, and it’s hard to convey “here’s a clever concept” in a cover! I won’t say I never judge a book by its cover, but the synopsis counts for much more with me.
