Monday Musings


Today’s MUSING MONDAYS has me thinking about reviews…

Do you read book reviews online? In newspapers? Elsewhere? If so, do you let those reviews stop you from reading a particular book, if the book was poorly reviewed? Or, do you read the book anyway?


I do read reviews pretty much everywhere. It kinda like movies reviews for me if someone says it's bad and I think it looks good I am not going to pay attention to the bad review. But if I already think it doesn't look good and I read a bad review for it then yeah I probably won't read it. I usually have a very different opinion on most things. So I don't always agree with everyone else so I like to judge things for myself.

You really have a good point there!

For me it all depends on who is writing the review.

I read them when I see them, but I'll always follow my heart feeling.
