This week's question...
Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?
Yes, I do read reviews. I read them from Amazon, Romantic Times, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads and fellow bloggers. I basically use the reviews to get a synopsis of the book to see if it's a storyline I'd like. I don't really go by the ratings or opinions. Reading is so subjective that I feel it's something I need to make up my own mind about.
Since I've had my blog, I do take what fellow bloggers say about books seriously. If I find a blogger who has similar reading tastes to mine, I will take their recommendations. But, ultimately, I do make my own decisions of which books I like. What's the old saying? "Someone else's junk is another person's treasure"? Or something like that and I think that's very true.
