Feature And Follow Friday (22).

Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

I've never brought a book because of a bad review, I have however brought books that have bad review's because I really wanted to read them anyway.


  1. Great answer. I've never bought a book because of a bad review. I like to judge for myself. I'm a new follower by the way :)

  2. Hi there :) just hopping through. My thoughts exactly :)

  3. I definitely understand that! I think I'm a sucker for punishment though, and when people talk about how TERRIBLE a book is, I just HAVE to read it to see if it's really THAT bad!

    I've heard the Carpathian series gets better, and I've read most of the Ghost Walkers series (and loved them), so some day I may have to give the rest of the series a chance :)

  4. Fair answer - I've often ignored bad reviews if the synopsis appeals to me!

  5. Me too! THat's how I do things as well! If I want to read the book I will no matter the reviews. If I am skeptical about a book and read too many bad reviews I am convinced to not read it though.

    I read whatever, regardless of the review. I'm not sure if I've read something because of a bad review, but I think maybe I have. Nothing sticks out in my mind.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Old follower hopping through. I think I have read books because of negative reviews, but never solely because of that. :>

    My Answer: No, Reviews matter a lot to me. Not unless the book became controversial that I would really feel the need to read that book.

  10. Hopping by to say have a great weekend!

  11. Too many good books out there to read books because of a bad review. Though I am like you, I've read books with bad reviews.
