Follow Friday #2

It’s time for another Feature and Follow Friday, as hosted by Parajunkee’s Review and Alison Can Read! What this means is, you see this post, you follow me, you tell me you’re a new follower and then I follow you! Everybody wins!

My preferred way to be followed is email!

This week’s question: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

The only book I can think of that I did this with is Hush, Hush. I got it at an awkward time and still haven’t read it, but I’d heard either glowing things, or that the writing was bad and Patch was abusive. At the same time I got it, I was reading Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey that resulted in this rant about abusive relationships in YA books, so I never ended up reading Hush, Hush because I was so disgusted and didn’t want to go through that again so soon. (And maybe that isn’t in there. I still don’t know how I feel about it because I haven’t read it. :P) Personally, bad reviews have never affected me, unless there were a lot of them. I know that some people just don’t like things, and other people love them!

  2. Thanks for becoming a follower of my site, I’m now following you back via Facebook. My book budget is too tight to spend on books already known to be bad. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Nice answer. I agree that unless there are an overwhelming number of bad reviews, a few negative reviews wouldn’t stop me from reading a book.
