This week’s musing, courtesy of Dr. Pepper Diva, asks…
What is your favorite part of a review?
For me, it's about discovering new-to-me authors and sometimes even new-to-me genres. I basically read reviews for a synopsis of the book. I've found the blurbs in books either aren't enough or can even be misleading sometimes. Even though I give ratings on my reviews, I don't really pay much attention to them on reviews because we all have different likes and dislikes. I can't tell you how many times I rates something 5 kitties and other people panned it - and vice versa. To each his own, I always say.
Oh - one thing I don't like about reviews is when they go into too much detail. I don't want to read spoilers. I prefer to read and watch a story unfold for myself.
