Hello everyone! My name is Abi, I like to read books, and Adam Silvera makes me cry a lot. He’s been on my list of favourite authors ever since History Is All You Left Me made me sob into my pillow at 3am. He has a new book releasing in January, and I am scared to read it.
Now, if I saw this anywhere else on the internet I would probably dismiss it and decide to form my own opinion. But I have added or accepted every one of these people because we have similar reading tastes. I follow them because they write reviews that I enjoy, respect, and trust. So if not a single one of them enjoyed it, what hope is there for me?
I try not to listen to others, I really do. In the past when I’ve seen negative reviews for books I’m anticipating, I’ve ignored them. Refused to even read them. But this time the scale is so shocking that it’s hard to ignore.
So, will I still be reading Infinity Son? Probably. But will I be rushing out to read it on release day? No, probably not.
Do you read reviews of books before deciding whether to read them?
Have you ever been put off by bad reviews?
And what’s your favourite Adam Silvera book?
