Booking Through Thursday


Do you read book reviews? Do you let them change your mind about reading/not reading a particular book?

I read a lot of the reviews posted by my fellow book bloggers, and I do take their reviews into consideration when deciding whether or not to read books; however, no one's review is a deciding factor for me. Aside from that, I read the summary for books first, and if it sounds good, I'll usually read it. Often times I will go on Goodreads and read reviews (non-spoiling of course) as I'm reading the book, that way it's at it's freshest point in my mind.

I have never decided not to read a book based on anyone's review of it. I also would never encourage anyone to not read a book based on what I thought of it. We all have differing opinions, and we all enjoy different things. I think it's up to us as individuals to make those decisions. I'm not saying we shouldn't read  reviews, (obviously, seeing as how I'm hoping people will read mine),  I'm just saying that we should never let someone's review of something discourage us from trying it all together. I actually enjoy seeing how differently we view things.
