I’ll be the first to admit that an interesting title, even more so than an interesting cover, is what catches my eye. I have bought a great deal of books on the basis of the title alone – and so far it has almost always resulted in a great read! I like titles that hint at the key themes or ideas of the novel, but manage not to give too much away.
