It's time for Follow Friday!!! :D
Okay so this week's question is:
Question: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
Answer: I can honestly say I haven't. I feel like if I were to read one or two bad reviews it wouldn't sway my opinion that much as to whether or not I read it (unless a bunch of my friends were telling me not to read it, since they pretty much know my taste); if a book sounds interesting, then I'm willing to give it a chance. However, if the majority of the reviews the book gets are bad ones (and by majority, I mean a lot of people have read it and said how they feel about it), then chances are a book's not going to be at the tippy-top of my list of books to read.
To put it simply, I think reading bad reviews for a book will definitely get my attention and make me more aware as I choose my next book to read, but at the end of the day I still like to make my own judgements about it.
To put it even simpler: No. :)
That's all for this Friday (*cough, Thursday) folks!!! I'd love for you all to come back for the What's the Word? Weekend post I'll make either Saturday or Sunday!!! :D
