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?
I'm pretty easy to convince to read a new author. If the book looks interesting, I'm game, even if the reviews have been less than stellar. I'm always willing to give a new author a chance to fascinate me, and, more often than not, I find another writer to admire.
Recommendations are tricky things. We all have such different tastes that it is hard to really know if you'll like a book based on what your friend, or even a relative, said. For me, it's about trying something new whenever I get a chance.
