Follow Friday # 26

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read! It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

This weeks question is:  

Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
Answer: I have never actually read a book because of a bad review. If it is a book that I really want to read it, and it is getting a lot of bad reviews, I will probably get the book from the library.

  1. I do the same, sorta. If it's something I really want to read, I likely wouldn't let a review stop me.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. I don't think I have ever bought a book simply because of a bad review - I tend to stay clear of those, but if just a few reviews are bad but most are positive, I'll get it.

  3. I've done the same thing as well. I know this is going to sound churlish, but I really don't like Bloodrose and should have listened to other reviewers.

  6. New LinkyFollower! Negative reviews actually often make me very curious, but I don't know if I have ever bought a book simply because there were negative reviews. I might read them, but I'm so broke these days.. LOL
