They say variety is the spice of life. We say that certainly applies to the bluestocking life! When it comes to books, we’re always on the lookout for something new. And yet we all have our “triggers,” details we take into consideration—sometimes subconsciously—when determining if a novel is worthy of our time and favor. This week as we sort through the towering stacks of review copies perched on (and under and alllllll the way around) our desks in the Bas Bleu editorial office, we thought it would be fun to hear what qualities are most important to you when selecting your next read.

If you can’t choose just one, yes, you can vote multiple times. And rest assured these polls are anonymous, so…be honest!
