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.
