Do you read book reviews? Do you let them change your mind about reading/not reading a particular book?
My main reason to have started blogging was in order to read book reviews, comment and add to my TBR list. It is the best way to find similar taste between bloggers also. Before blogging I didn't really read reviews because I wasn't that open to what I would read. I was a Mary Higgins Clark fan and pretty much that was it :-0 shocking I know.
Have I allowed reviews to change my mind, Absolutely. The most recent - I put Numbers by Rachel Ward on my Wishlist and was so excited by the concept, couldn't wait for it to be released, then numerous reviews have been kind of iffy and bloggers disappointed, so I deleted that one from my LibraryThing listing.
There are to many great books to go into one expecting it not to be great, I choose my books hoping for them all to be great not just 'ok'. Of course there are reviews you read that you have to make your own judgment on if you will try it because we are all so different, that is what is great about blogging.
I find Amazon does a great job on sending me recommendations according to what I rate also and I enjoy the variety of reviews there.
I appreciate all comments.
