Each week Katrina @ Callapidder Days will be posting a question to go along with our FIR challenge.
How much do book reviews influence your decision to acquire and/or read a book?
No matter how much I think I may like a book based on the plot – it’s really the writing that always gets to me. If I don’t enjoy the author’s style I can’t read the book – and I am NOT reading something that isn’t fun.
I also, enjoy reading bad reviews. I’ve found many great books by reading things that others thought were bad… like The Goddess Test which I read because of a bad review.
So, essentially, when I read a teaser I like I look for reviews on the book and if I like the reviews I’ll grab the book. In essence, yes, the reviews help tremendously but not in a traditional sense.
What about you?
