It's been awhile since I've done one of these, but this question caught my attention.
Do you read book reviews? Do you let them change your mind about reading/not reading a particular book?
I do read book reviews but always after I've read the book myself. Especially if I plan on reviewing them myself.
Once I do a review, I'll go back and read others reviews to see what they thought. For example I've heard over and over the past couple years about how great the Hunger Games and Catching Fire were. I just finished listening to both on audio and have had one review posted and the second to come this week. I haven't read any reviews yet other than hearing people say how good they were. I'm always afraid the reviews will drop a spoiler or something so I avoid them.
So generally I let word of mouth pull me towards or away from a book, not reviews.
