  18. First, if they are free. Two, the cover, three the blurb maybe....I try to give all types a try. If I hate it I just stop reading it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I honestly try not to read reviews, because book reviews are a bit subjective. Did you like or dislike, essentially, when my interests may differ from others. The only thing I look for is info about there being a ton of mistakes in the book. Books that are in dire need of a good editor. Lately, I've mostly picked new books to read by looking at my library's digital borrow options; otherwise, I like to get a free book in a series to check out before buying the rest. One of those people that really prefers a series to a standalone :)

    1. I should add that it's more not reading the star ratings. The text isn't too bad. 5 stars from me can differ from 5 stars from another, but the text should be a solid explanation of what they noticed

  27. If the synopsis catches my attention then I'd skim a few of the negative reviews to see if there are aspects present in the book that I'd dislike or if I'm seeing an overly hyped book then I eventually end up giving in to see what all the fuss is about. Also, list recommendations help me choose my next book to buy pretty often.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have found several new authors by reading reviews (blogs).

    ReplyDelete
  29. Most of the time my attention gets drawn by the cover´s book, then I go for goodreads to get more knowdlege with the positive and negatives spoiler-free reviews there. :D

  56. For some books, I already know the author. For others, I'll trust a very, very few friends' recommendations. Most, I depend either on reviews (primarily when purchasing books online, which is where I get most of my books), or by book blurbs (for those few book purchases at physical stores).
