Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
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?
BB or before blogging, I would make my decisions solely based on the synopsis on the back of the book. Since I wasn’t surrounded by those who enjoyed reading, recommendations by mouth were far and few between. But since I have found this community, I still rely on the synopsis, but now, also rely on other bloggers’ reviews.
Some bloggers may give stellar reviews on books, however, if the genre is not one that I enjoy, I am not going to purchase the book simply because of that review. I have to enjoy premise of the book overall.
What about you? How do you decide to read a book by a new author?
