Musing Mondays: Book reviews

So I've been dipping my toes into some weekly posts to decide which I like and I've come across Musing Mondays hosted by Rebecca. I really have been liking her questions so here's my first Musing Monday!

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about book reviews…
Do you read any non-blogging book reviews? If so, where (newspaper, library etc)? Do you have any favourites sources you'd like to share?

Most of the book reviews I read are from book blogs. I like that I can read multiple posts on lots of different books and figure out which bloggers have my kind of reading tastes. Then I know who will recommend a book that I will like.

I do tend to check out the Amazon and Barnes and noble dot com reviews if I'm buying from them (or if I'm bored at work and looking for some new books...). These reviews just can't be trusted as much as the book blogger's though.

I think that my favorite kind of review though is a in-person-stranger-review. I love when I'm at a bookstore or library and someone sees a book in my hand and goes "Oh my gosh, you HAVE to read that!" (I'm guilty of doing this ALL the time. I'm sure that some people think that I'm a weirdo stranger, but I love recommending books to people!) It just shows that this book really left an impression on them so it must be worth the read.


  1. Welcome to musing mondays. I do the same thing in bookstores - see a book I've read in someone's hand and give them my 2 cents. Others have done the same thing to me. I appreciate the input.
