Do you read book reviews? Do you let them change your mind about reading/not reading a particular book?
Yes and yes. There are so many books that I prefer to read at least a few reviews before reading one or putting it into my to-read-pile. It’s very rare for me to pick a book based on just the cover and blurb.
There are, of course, familiar writers and series which I do get before reading reviews but with all other books I read reviews first.
Oh, I tend to read just a little bit of plot description and the scroll down to what the reviewers says (if anything) about characters, setting, themes, etc.
