Musing Mondays - New-to-Me Authors

This week’s musing asks…

How do you decide to read a book by an author you haven’t read before? What sort of recommendations count most highly in making that decision?

My answer...

If I happen to read a review or recommendation from a fellow blogger that intrigues me, I'll give the author a try. Or if I see an advertisement or browse through the bookstore and read a cover blurb, I will try the author if it's a plot that interests me. Also, authors inquire about reviews, when they send me a blurb about their book and it looks like something I'd enjoy, I'll try it.

It's actually more about the storyline than the author for me.

  1. Agreed! It is more about the story than the author for me too.

  2. For me, the story overview is what makes me read a book more than anything else, as I tend to put a lot of faith in that.

    Hoping you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. That cat is an absolute heartbreaker.

  4. I agree with what you have said. I also sometimes buy a book because I love the cover art, and most of the time I have enjoyed those books also.

  5. I get recommendations from Library Thing and always check the new book section at the library
