Booking Through Thursday - 02/23/12

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?
And–what are your favorite book blogs?
When I am deciding whether to follow a blog, the first thing I look at is if I have any interest in the books they have read recently (ie - recent reviews). So yes, reviews are very important.  Most of the time, the answer is yes. I have such a wide range of interests and read so many different genres. 

However, there are times that I scroll back several months and its nothing except...Paranormal YA....or Christian Adult...

Not my favorite, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are toast in my book. I will then look at a few of their posts. If their writing is interesting, funny, entertaining I will often give them a shot. I've actually got a couple of fashion blogs followed even though I have no interest in fashion, but the bloggers are fun to read.  If their reading taste is very different, or to specific, and their blog isn't very entertaining to me, I usually chock it up to "to each his own" and pass.

Generally,  memes and giveaways are the last thing I notice.

Some of my favorites are:


Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
