FF Fun

It's been a while since I've joined in with Parajunkee's Follow Friday feature but so thought it was time to drop on by and join in again! It's been a couple of weeks since I joined in a meme, but from my recent posts I'm sure people can see why I've been a bit quiet. 

The FF question for this week is "Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?"

I can say unequivocally no, although there have been a couple of instances where I have almost been tempted just to see if a book is a bad as it has been painted. I have bought books despite bad reviews though.

In the last couple of weeks I have posted reviews on 

Distracted by P T Duck, a thriller and,

The Riddler's Gift by Greg Hamerton, an epic fantasy.

I also completed a supernatural novel last night, the review will follow soon. 

I hope everyone who gets a break over Easter is having a good time, and that other people (i.e people who aren't like me and on a diet) are enjoying lots of chocolate.

Have a great weekend, 
TC x

I'm the same way. Why read bad books? I know some people read them for laughs, but I don't want to spend time and money on that. There are so many books out there.

New follower, I agree I think it's a
waste of time reading a bad book.

I definitely stay away from books with bad reviews that list things I know I don't like, but sometimes if a book gets enough bad reviews, I'm tempted to read it just to see if it's as bad as everyone else says!

I think it would take a lot to get me to read a book based on just one review - good or bad! It's just too much of a commitment...

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.
