How Do You Choose Your Next Read?

We all have a towering TBR pile, maybe several, but we still want more! So you stop by the library/book store/thrift store and peruse the shelves.

I look at the title, author, cover and blurbs from authors I know, but will rarely read the synopsis. If possible, I prefer to read a book without knowing anything. At. All. I can guess if it’s historical or suspense by the cover and title. I’d really rather not know too much.

Having said that. How do you pick your next read or the one after that? How does one book jump ahead of all the other beauties you have stacked up?

I just went to the library and picked up these four books. Which one should I read first and why?
