Deciding What to Review

So I’m new to the whole book reviewing/requesting galleys on netgalley sort of thing. So I wanted to put a post out their for other bloggers and put a question out their for readers as well.

As bloggers how do you decide what you’re going to review? Do you look through the lists at netgalley and request titles that look interesting? Or do you only review books after they come out and you’ve picked them up then?

To those who are reading my blog: What kind of reviews are you interested in? Do you like blogs that specialize in a certain genre? i.e blogs only about young adult, horror, sci fi etc? Or do you like ones that cover everything so that you might read about a book you might not have other wise picked up?

I’m hoping to get one or two book reviews out to you guys this week, but we’ll have to see with the holiday madness. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and that the holidays don’t stress you out!

  1. I do everything except look for books that are looking for reviews.

    My approach is to stick to books that sound like something I’m going to really enjoy and for me enjoy isn’t necessarily great plot, but exceptional writing and moving passages, sometimes a whim, a curiosity or a classic long ignored. By doing this, it eventiually becomes clear which genre or genres we are attracted to, which should in theory attract like minded followers.
