Feature & Follow Friday (5)

It's time for another Feature & Follow Friday. This is hosted by Alison can read and Parajunky :D

And this time the quistion is:

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

A: I really don't think that I especially read a book because of a bad review. But I often read the reviews of other people on goodreads. And when I really think it's a good book even if a lot of people gave them bad reviews I really like to read them, and see it for my self.

What about you guys?
Have a nice weekend!

  1. New follower, I'm exactly the same, I don't see the point of reading a book just because it has bad reviews, my ff


  2. Oh yeah, Goodreads is behind a lot of book buying. In fact I think most of it results from reading reviews on Goodreads. If it hadn't been invented I would invent it, that's how awesome I think it is.

    Thanks for stopping by my place, Mariska, it's always a pleasure to "meet" you in the blogosphere! :)
    Have a fab weekend!

  3. I haven't read because of a bad review. If a lot of my goodreads friends hate a book I definitely take heed because I know and trust their taste. But if it's the last in a series I plan to read I still finish it because I like conclusions.

    My follow friday. Hope you'll stop by.

  4. Old follower hopping through to wish you great holidays! :)

  5. I think it's good that you make up your own mind- that's the right way to do it!

  7. I have to agree that I think it's great you make up your own mind. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I followed back.

  8. I definitely recommend The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, though it is fairly intense on the sexual refrences, which may be a little overcore at times. ( :

    I love your answer! Following back!

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I also use Goodreads to find new books to read. Following you back :)

  10. I also read reviews on Goodreads but only after I've read the book so as to avoid spoilers.

    Thanks for stopping by and I'm following back.

  11. I like to read a mix of different reviews, it gives me a good idea of what to expect :)

    Following from FF - sorry it's taken me a while to get round to you! It's my first week joining in, I hope you might have time to visit my FF post.

  12. New follower. I totally agree with you.

  13. Great answer. Sometimes a bad review can make you aware of a book that you know you'd like.

  16. Yeah, bad reviews just aren't a deterrent, because people are different, and like different things :) Old follower :) Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
