What Draws You to a Book?

Books are beautiful beautiful things. I love the smell of them, and the feel of one in my hands (although sometimes when reading at night I don't love the feel of them on my face), and the wonder that someone created an amazing story from just their imaginations. I read a lot of books, but I started thinking about what draws me to certain books over other books. Why do I pass by some covers or book descriptions over others? Well, that's what I'm going to be talking about in this post.


Covers:
How many times have we all heard this? Not just about books either, but about people, food, whatever, you name it and this phrase has been used. It means don't judge the content by the outside whether beautiful or fugly.

Personally, I think it's a great phrase, but I have to say I struggle so much with this sometimes. I mean sometimes covers are just soooo danged pretty that the story has to be rockin' right?
I mean these covers are completely gorgeous and I have to say that while I try not to judge a book by its cover I do find myself drawn to books with gorgeous covers.

Strong Female Leads:
I am a sucker for a book that has a strong female character who is going to just kick butt through the book. Sometimes she may not start out that way, but when a character becomes strong in her own right, I can't help but love that.



















Fantasy Worlds:
I loooove love love worlds that aren't like our own. Or if they're a slightly different version of our world. I can't resist a world or worlds where there's fantasy creatures or terrifying landscapes or where the world is just as important as the characters.

The Creatures:
From werewolves, to vampires, to dragons, and everything in between I can't help but fall madly in love. If I find out a book has a dragon in it? I barely read the synopsis before my happy self is grabbing it off the shelf.

Trauma:
I am drawn to books with broken characters. I love watching their journey to overcome that because it gives me hope for the people I work with and for myself. I just can't stop feeling the pull to read their stories and want them to be better and stronger.

Romance:
I rarely read a book without kissing. I love a good romance story. With kissing, sometimes sexy times, and chemistry. I can't resist. I love love!
