Book Blogger Hop #17

Click the image above to know what this is about! It’s fun!

This week question:

Do the star ratings a book receives on Goodreads or retail sites affect whether you buy the book or not? (submitted by Flora @ Flora’s Musings…)

My answer:

Usually, no. Maybe if it is first in a series, but if it is not and I want to read that series, no, it doesn’t matter.

8 coffees on “Book Blogger Hop #17

  1. The only time I take ratings into consideration when buying a book is when I am on the fence about it and if I am buying a book I haven’t read as a gift for someone else. But even then, l am more interested in reading a person’s thoughts on a book and not just the ratings.

    Have a good weekend and stay safe and well.

  2. Thanks for answering my question, Laura. ;-)
    Star ratings do play a part in my decision whether to buy a book or not but it’s more about the reviews, thoughts and comments for me. Unless I’m on the fence, but it’s Goodreads I trust over Amazon.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe and healthy.

    1. Hi Flora!

      Yes, comments and reviews are what I read if I want to know more about the book (because sometimes I understand from them whether the book is for me or not) so I prefer them to star rating. And I go to Goodreads, too.

      Thanks and stay safe, too!!

  3. I couldn’t agree more – no ones tastes runs in exactly the same direction. I love smut, my mum hates it. Therefor why would I look at her rating on a book before I buy it? Same goes for everyone else out there. Lol I like to use a more judgmental tool for directing my purchases. The cover… eek.

    1. Exactly! We are all different! Reviews are better even if they are subjective, too.

      Running to your website to leave a comment :D

      Take care ;)
