I honestly like ones that keep the plot in the description/book itself. Ones titled things like "Vampire Kisses" and have two people making out on the front cover isn't that interesting to me. But, say, with The Fault in Our Stars 由 John Green, I like it because you'd never guess it was about terminal cancer (I also like it because it was 由 John Green, but that's not the point). Quirky titles and covers just draw me in. I know that's 'judging a book 由 its cover', but a good cover design/title can change the whole feeling of a book.

((WARNING: Be prepared for weirdness)
Well, when I walk into a bookstore/library, I always have a vague idea of what I want. I learned early on that that helps me find it faster. I feel a sort of pull towards what I'm looking for. Sometimes, I'll be puled to 图书 I already know, but I was pulled there because they are familiar. I never wander around.
If I'm pulled to a certain shelf, I'll scan ths tirles, searching for the one that pulled me. If it looks promising, I'll take it off the shelf and read the back. 更多 often than not, I end up putting the book back.

My school has a librarian, and she is AWESOME and knows exactly what kinds of 图书 I would like, so I usually ask her.

Not always the 标题 of the book, 或者 the book cover. Because the author/illustrator doesn't have to be artistic. Like me, I'm personally NOT an artist.

Usually if the plot is mysterious and exciting, if it catches my attention, I go for the book. Usually, I like 阅读 dystopian fiction, like maybe if the character has unusual traits, I figure that the book is probably good. Like this book.

I don't think the 作者 makes the cover

But I so agree with u. The plot is everything

but if sometimes the 作者 can't afford an illustrator, she does the cover herself/himself. 或者 if the 作者 wants the cover to look 更多 original, she/he does it him/herself.

Whenever I start a book, I always read the last sentence/paragraph for some odd reason.
