Last week I was interviewed by Lucy from Blonde Write More about my reading and reviewing habits – you can read the interview here.
Lucy writes some exceptionally funny posts and I do recommend her blog, not only if you are a writer, but if like me, you enjoy a chuckle!
Anyway one of her deadly questions was What is your selection process for reviewing a book? Since I review every book I finish I thought about how I select a book and decided that I actually go through quite a complex process which I’ve attempted to visually replicate in my first infographic!
For instance if I consider a ‘new to me’ author then a number of factors come into play as disparate as where the book is set, whether it is linked to my current obsession (at the moment this is poisoners but it is liable to change on a complete whim!), and even the publisher – something prior to blogging wouldn’t have even featured. Obviously, I the number of considerations is strictly dependent on the whereabouts of my very fetching will-power hat!
So now over to you – please take the poll and/or add your comments on what factors encourage you to buy a book? If you select a book on another category entirely, please let me know!
