Follow Friday #11


Follow Me Friday is a book meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. #FF is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. In order to join in the fun, all you need is well . . . A book blog :)

The question this week is:

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

My answer:

  Umm, no. But I've been in the following situation many times:
1. I request a book
2. I see a bad review of it
3. I want to read the book even more, just to prove that somebody out there could like it

The outcome is not always positive, mind you. Sometimes I end up disappointed as well. But there are times when I get to like a book that somebody else rated low.
