Booking Through Thursday: Reviews

It's time for another Booking Through Thursday~! This weeks question is: Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?
Book reviews are wonderful, I read them a lot. Not as much as books but pretty close. I love to read snarky reviews, because I love to laugh, but I also like them to be constructive as well. I read reviews mostly on other blogs, amazon, and goodreads. As long as a review doesn't simply read "WORST Book EVAH~!" or "BEST Book EVAH~!!" I will generally take their opinion into consideration before deciding what book to read. I'm somewhat wary of reviewers who seem to like every book that comes out, I'm not sure I can entirely trust their judgement. When it comes down to it though, I usually decide if I can deal with what people say is bad about the book. I'm very cautious about the books I buy, because I want to buy something I will like, something I would love my children to eventually read. If a majority of reviewers say a book is supremely excellent or even very cute I will give it a chance and actually buy it. Most of the time though, I feed my need to read at the library. :D


  1. Great answer.

    here's mine:

  2. I like to read reviews but I don't base my book buying decisions on them. I especially love funny reviews or reviews where the person honestly loved the book and was so over the top excited about it.


Don't hesitate to leave a comment I love hearing from you~! Because I am terrible at remembering to give out awards after people graciously give them to me, I have now made my blog an award free zone like so many others. I thank you for thinking of me though.
