Todays question is this:

“What words/phrases in a blurb make a book irresistible? What words/phrases will make you put the book back down immediately?”

What a great question!  Okay, my list of great words in the book blurb are:
  • Historical
  • triumph of the human spirit
  • unrequited love
  • the power of love
  • family bonds or family relationships

The words or phrases that make me put the book down:
  • "heaving bosom" type words (not that I don't like a good romp in the old historical hay but...)
  • anything involving disturbing content like inappropriate family relationships (you know what I mean)
  • murder of a child
  • cop type books
  • political thrillers
  • horror
What are yours??
