Musing Mondays #5
A meme hosted by 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?
If I'm in library, I just go through shelves and pick books by name, after that I check the cover and then I read the blurb. And usually I only check books from the YA- shelves.
If I don't have time to go to library and randomly pick out books, I go to Goodreads, or go through blogs, and pick the books that sounds interesting. Many times I also check the overall rating and maybe read some reviews and then decide to read a book. But yet again, I always choose my reading because of the book, not author. Mostly I don't even remember the authors, just books/ series names.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!
