  52. What intrigues me enough to follow a blog is good reviews and great variety of genres , because i like finding new authors and books series on blogs its where i usually find all my new fave authors :) I also like a blog that interacts with its followers and yeah who doesn't love a giveaway :D it also helps with getting peoples opinion on books i've never reda or just seeing what others think of books i like :) A blog i'd follow all in all has good variety is interactive non judgmental on authors or books and had great reviews :) Thanks for the giveaway :)


  53. The reviews for books in the genres that I like to read are the main reason why I follow a blog. I especially appreciate blogs where the reviews are honest without being mean. The giveaways don't hurt either and the man candy on the site helps too! I have found several authors I wouldn't have otherwise because of the reviews.

  54. If a blog focuses on my top two or three romance sub-genres, then I will usually follow them. If they get great interviews with my favorite authors, it really helps.
