Do You Read the Reviews of Books You REALLY Want to Read?
For me, there are some reviews of books that I will just not read. No matter if they're positive or negative. For instance, for almost any Jennifer L. Armetrout book within my genres, I won't read the reviews. Mostly because I want to go in completely blind and unhindered. It's not because I don't care what my friends thought, but it's quite literally that I don't want any sort of opinion to have an effect on me.
The same thing will go for a book that I am really excited about and then I see a fellow blogger may have given it 2 stars. And while I love my friends to death, I don't want to know why they didn't like a book I am super excited for. And yeah, there are times where I will read a super hyped and loved book and I'll be the lone wolf who didn't like it.
So yeah, if it's for a book I am suuuuper excited for, odds are likely that I may not read the review. Unless there's some extenuating circumstance...which I really can't think of an example of such, but there have been times I've done that! LOL!
So do you guys read reviews of the books you reallllly want to read? Even if your friends didn't like it?
