Booking Through Thursday



What do you look for when reading a book blog? Does the blogger have to read the same genre? Do you like reviews? Personal posts? Memes? Giveaways? What attracts you to a book blog?


I like to read book blogs that have lots of reviews, preferably in the genres I read, but I'm always willing to explore ones by people with completely different tastes. Giveaways are fun, but they're not a requirement for me to love the blog.
I do like to see people who are honest with their reviews, though. If they are either too mean or too nice about all of the books they read, then I tend to become suspicious that they are not being completely truthful.
More than anything, there has to be meaningful content in the blog, whether it's personal or only about books.

Good answer. Constructive criticism is good in a review, but like you I don't like mean reviews for the sake of being mean. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

Great thoughts-it can be hard to read a blog with completely different tastes, but they can offer new perspective.
