Always a Booklover

The magic of books just enchants me. I love reading, what more can I say?

Musing Mondays [2]

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading! !

This week's musing asks...

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?

Hmm, for me, its normally about what the story is about. I read books by authors I've never tried before all the time. Mostly, I don't really care about the author. As long as the book looks good, seems interesting, I'll read it. I can read pretty quickly so if I don't like a book, I'll just finish it up really fast! Actually, a lot depends on my mood. If I'm in the mood to read a certain genre, the book will just seem really nice to me. For example, in romances, if I read too many Harlequin books, I tend to compare them and won't enjoy a particular book as much as in the past. Nowadays, I'll look at some reviews without spoilers to decide or see the average rating. If a book is rated really badly, I will tend to try it, because I want to see just why everyone dislikes that book. Somehow, if a book has wayy too many good reviews, I may not read the book. I dunno, I've never really enjoyed reading a book that EVERYONE knows about and have read, especially nowadays. Don't ask me why, I think I'm weird!

Heh, what about you guys? Tell me what you think! ;D


I get recommendations from Library Thing and always check the new book section at the library
but fellow bloggers are probably my number one source of I need more


Yeah, I so understand that! Even though my TBR has over a 100 books (and that isn't even a fraction of what I really want to read), I still can't resist getting new recs and adding more books!
