Follow Friday

Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Q. Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
A. I answered this earlier. I tend to not like some of the books that everyone else are raving about so I figure the opposite to be true sometimes also. Just because someone else didn't like it, doesn't mean I won't (especially when the things they dislike are things I know I like in a book).

Happy Friday and Have a Great Weekend!


  1. I don't let the negative reviews sway my decision unless a majority of people feel negatively about it.

  2. Hi Kristina :)

    I'm one of those who will borrow them from the library if they've recvd negative reviews. Sometime curiosity can kill the cat.

  11. That's a pretty fair answer :) Definitely always best to make up your own mind. I've loved some books other people have hated!

    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.

  15. Hopping by to say have a great weekend!

  16. Negative reviews don't stop me from reading books, but I do factor them when it comes to purchasing. If I'm unsure about it, I'd rather borrow it first to see if it's something I'd like to keep on my shelf.

    New follower here! Happy Friday :).

  17. Yeah, it's so hard to judge whether or not you'll like a book based on someone else's opinion. Independent investigation! Haha.

    I'm a new follower! :)
