Musing Mondays


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?



I have to confess that I don't go out hunting for book reviews online unless something has peaked my interest in the book. If however, someone recommends a book to me, then I will search all over the web for reviews.

I get two weekly magazines. I get Entertainment Weekly and I get People. I always read their book reviews. I don't always agree but then again, that's the point of a review, it's one person's opinion.

I've also been known to wait until after I've read the book to look for reviews. This way I can agree or disagree with no worry of spoilers.

I've never tried Emtertainment Weekly.

I like to read a variety of reviews, not so much for the opinions but just to see what is getting the press. After I read and review a book, then I like to check out the opinions to see if I agree.

I hate spoilers too. But I do love a good book talk.
