Booking Through Thursday


Booking Through Thursday

Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?

Yes, I do read book reviews.It helps me determine whether or not, I might be interested in the book enough to purchase it.

  2. I agree with CMash in that reading reviews my TBR list is growing. I prefer reading the book bloggers reviews over professional reviewers. I think the book blogger are more honest with their reviews. However, that is just my opinion.

  4. I do like to read reviews before I decide to buy a book. I like to know what I'm getting into (though I don't want spoilers). I do my own review blog for clean romances, but I like many genres. http://cleanromancereviews.blogspot.com

  6. I definitely use the reviews I read when adding to my huge tbr pile. There's several bloggers who have the same tastes as mine so I know if they liked it, so will I.

  8. I usually only use reviews for a synopsis of the book, but there are some bloggers with the same interests as me. So, I'll read those.

  9. It's good to read reviews, too. But, as for me, I really don't want to be influenced by another reader's opinion which could be different from my own.

  11. I'll still read a book that has had a bad review if the topic sounds interesting to me. I'd rather make my own mind up in the end.
