How To Determine Whether A Book Is "Worth Reading"

I see this question floating around on various book groups and forums at least three times a day. I have to admit, it's been driving me a bit bonkers. So I thought, why not write a quick blog post about it?

So, you've been wondering whether or not a book is worth reading...

The first step is to ask yourself: Am I personally interested in reading this book?

If your answer is yes, give it a shot!

If your answer is no, don't bother!

Simple! :) Your personal interest level is really the only factor here. 

Asking random people on the internet won't be effective no matter how often you ask. You are always just going to get randoms saying "yes" or "no" depending on whether they personally liked the book. 

Everyone has a different experience with every single book out there. Who's to say a book will be a hit or a miss with you personally until you try it?

Thanks for reading!

  1. YESSS! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

  2. Most of what I read is based on my mood, do I want something nostalgic, funny, more YA vs MG? Did the cover scream read me? Then sometimes it's just that I have to get it back to the library :)

    1. Ha! Most of my reads are library books, so I'm always crunched with due dates! :)

  3. That's pretty much it. :) I've had bloggers whose judgment I trust recommend a book and not liked it, so you really never know until you try it yourself. Although I will say usually the recs are spot on, because people know what I like, more or less, but it's so subjective.

    1. Definitely! I take recommendations from a number of sources :) Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Whenever I'm iffy about reading a book, I usually end up checking it out from the library. I have no problem dropping a library book (figuratively, of course) if it doesn't drawn me in after the first few pages because it's not like I've spent money on the thing. Of course this is only possible because I have an awesome library which I know not everyone has.
