I call myself a mood reader but in reality I usually know at least the next book or two I have coming. I don't plan too much farther ahead than that though since my mood may change, and I like to keep my options open. I don't generally request ARC's either, so I don't have that pressure to keep to release dates as much. All in all it works for me, but I was still fascinated by the fact that a cover could capture me so easily! And once I did read the synopsis I knew that The Window would probably be a book I would like (and I was right- it was a little different than I was expecting, but a solid 3 star). There have been times, of course, when a cover grabs me and then I am disappointed, but you can't win 'em all! By and large my track record has been good.
So... how about you? Do you have situations where a cover screams "read me?"
