Follow Friday (4)


Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every week one lucky blogger is featured, and the featured blogger is followed by all participants. On top of that, participants also follow each other. Win win for everyone!

Since this is NOT a blogger blog, I would like to be followed via RSS (which was recently updated to Feedburner), or by subscribing by email (insert your email at the top left sidebar).

Question: Have you ever bought a book because of a bad review?

I have to admit that I’ve never bought a book because of a bad review before. I did buy a book despite of a bad review a couple of times. For instance, even though I heard a lot of bad things about Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and Fallen by Lauren Kate, I did end up buying both books to see for myself. So maybe I did end up buying them because of bad reviews. I was, in any case, curious to find out if they were really as bad as some people thought they were.

What about you?


  1. Hi! I agree with your answer, I have bought a couple of books despite bad reviews before. By the way, love your blog and am a new follower! Stop by my blog and follow me back?

  2. I had the same thing with Twilight! Because of all the bad reviews on one side and all the extreme lovers on the other side. I just had to find out on which side I was, so I decided to buy them (luckily very cheap at a secondary bookstore.. I belong to the haters :p)

  3. Hopping by to say have a great weekend!
