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?”
I'm a big fan of "true stories", so anything that mentions that, I will gobble up. Also I will pick up any book that talks about Spiritual Journey's, Angels and stuff like that. I will also read anything about Christmas.
What makes me put a book down faster than anything is the word "incest". I will pretty much give anything a chance, but that storyline bothers me.
Something else that makes me drop a book is anything that has to do with "The Old West" or "Gunslinging" (aside from the King books). I'm not terribly interested in that subject, I have watched some western movies but it has to be a very good one or have someone real handsome in it like Gary Cooper. LOL!
