Feature and Follow (7)

This is a feature hosted by Para-Junkee and Alison can Read.They have been awesome and this feature allows to meet new book bloggers and book fans spread all over the Land of Internet.

Q :WHAT NEGATIVE REVIEW MADE YOU BUY THE BOOK?

I love reading reviews for books and sometimes I only buy books whose reviews were good regardless of the fact I hated the blurb.Even when I try to not read spoilers I generally find them.Some spoilers make me buy the book some just put me off it. Plus sometimes a negative review from some one points out what I actually want to read in a book.It might displease the reviews but sometimes that is what interests me.

Have you bought any books after reading a negative review?

I bought Fallen by Lauren Kate and Twilight because of bad reviews. I wanted to know why everyone thought they were bad!

I ended up buying Twilight (and hating it as much as the bad reviews I read :p) Luckily I've found them very cheap.. Still stuck in book three though.

Some spoilers you just can't avoid. I'm glad they don't bother me much either. Or them making me want to read a book more!

Aaw, agreed. Tastes differ. I don't want to read too many spoilers, though. Some I need to know, because I'm a nervous/angsty reader, but that's about it. *g*

I like to read books that elicit strong responses, whether they be positive or negative. So if someone hated a book? It makes me want to read it just to see if it was really THAT bad :D

Thanks for stopping by! Following back :)
