Feature and Follow #6

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a way for bloggers to gain new followers and friends.

This week's question:

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

This has only ever happened once, and I bought it because there were so many bad reviews that I wanted to see why everyone didn't like it. This happened with Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison. I tried reading it, but I couldn't even make it halfway through, and it was as bad as everyone said it was. Most of the time though, bad reviews usually make me not want to read the book. I do try to keep an open mind though, and give everything a shot.

Weekly recap:

What's your answer to this week's question? Happy Easter and have a great weekend!


  1. So all the bad reviewers were correct? Never heard of this one, but I'll be sure to steer clear of it! New follower. Here's mine: My FF

  2. I always try to read a book, eventhough there are a lot of bad reviews. Sometimes, they even makes me anxioius about the book :p

  4. I usually tend to read books because of negative reviews, but it depends on what the negative reviews state. I didn't read Triz and Izzie for example, even though I got it from NetGalley because I knew I'd just end up DNFing it. Maybe one day when I'm in the mood but so far.. Nope, rather not. *g*
