For fun, I thought I'd ask other authors and readers to share what they are reading. What drew you to a certain book and why? Was it the genre? The cover art? The author? The cover blurb? Share your thoughts on what grabs your attention as a reader.
I tend to gravitate towards books in two genres, mystery and horror. Cover art does draw me, but it's not a final deciding factor. I'll pick a book if I've read the author before, or if the back cover sounds good and the first page grabs me.
Unfortunately (or fortunately?), I've gotten into the bad habit of reading several books at once. Do you?
I'm now reading:
Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, mystery, Joyce and Jim Lavene
Mayhem in Miniature, mystery, Margaret Grace/Camille Minichino
Devil in the White City, Erik Larson
