Feature & Follow # 7

Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

---------------------------------

No, I can honestly say Ive never read or bought a book just because of a bad review! I go more towards great covers and great reviews! If there is not a review available it has to have a great synopsis.

 Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

 

Happy Easter!!!

  1. I'm beginning to think I'm just a sucker for punishment -- when so many people talk about how AWFUL a book is, I just HAVE to read it and see if it's really all that horrid or if people are just being silly :P

    Thanks for stopping by! Following back FB, G+, & Twitter.

  2. I'm always unusually drawn to the bad reviews, and more often than not, I am actually pleasantly surprised! Maybe I have really bad taste lol

  4. Thanks for stopping by our blog! If a friend or trusted reviewer hate a book, then i stay away from it. If it's a random bad review, especially a personal one, then it gets me interested in the book.

  5. I am the same way.Covers always draw me first. Then I read the synopsis, then the reviews. If the synopsis grabs me though, I don't worry about reviews. thanks for stopping by. Old follower GFC, new on twitter and facebook.

  7. I'm the same - though, if a book has mixed reviews but a compelling premise, I'll probably borrow it first. If I like it, I'll buy it. If not, I'll buy something else. It works out in the end :).

  8. New FB Fan! Hmm.. I often read books because of negative reviews, to be honest. Tastes differ and a good review always includes reasons as to why the reviewer did not enjoy the novel, so.. *g*

  10. Hi,
    New follower, nice to meet you. I would not intentionally buy a book because of a bad review, but I have read book with bad review and loved them. For me it is based on the book and the author.

  11. Heya Valerie,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I think I stalked you all over the place.. :D It's great to meet you.

    I love book covers and have to admit I'm attracted to a book by the mere sight of a beautiful one. As much as reviews are important, bad reviews don't stop me from reading a book.
