Musing Mondays Meme

Musing Mondays  is a weekly Meme where MizB will ask a book/reading-related question, and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.

How do you decide to read a book by an author you haven’t read before? What sort of recommendations count most highly in making that decision?

I have two steps in my decision making when I add a book to my "To-Read" shelf. One, I read the synopsis about the book and see if it sounds interesting. Two, If it sounds like something I would like, I go check out its ratings and reviews. This is honestly a big factor in picking a book to read. If the book has constant bad ratings then I don't add it. I take the reviews seriously so if it gets good reviews I will normally put it on my TBR list.
