Follow Friday (#15)
Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

No I actually haven't. But I have been tempted to buy The Selection or even Modeland. 

 TGIF (#14)

Book Series Finales: Which book, from any series has been your favorite ending? What about your least favorite ending?

My favorite ending to a series has to be the Uglies series, I really enjoyed reading those novels and happy to see it come to a close happily.

Hey! New follower here! My favorite ending will always be the ending to the last book of the Cirque du Freak series, pure heartbreaking!
My FF!

Kate said...

Haha - I almost bought Modeland the other day at half priced books, but I didn't.

Well, I know I've followed you before, but it said I wasn't, so I RE-followed you!

I've never heard of Modeland, but I as well am kind of drawn to the negative reviews of The Selection.

I haven't heard of Modeland. Sometimes negative reviews prompt me to look into a book further. I am a new follower. Here is my FF: Mom Reads My Books

I LOOOVED the Uglies! I loved all 3 books but that 4th Extras was kind of lame. So I ignore that one ever existed and say the real ending is book 3! :P

Valerie said...

Hopping through!!

Have a great Easter!

Yea, I can't say I have ever bought a book just because it got a bad review. But I have definitely book a book regardless of it getting a bad review.

My Answer: No, Reviews matter a lot to me. Not unless the book became controversial that I would really feel the need to read that book.

Hello New Follower here :)

I have a similiar view of the Selection. I think once the library has it in stock, I'll borrow it.

Happy Friday!

Haven't read any of those but I'm planning on reading the selection soon. Bad reviews don't turn me off if I really want to read a book but if I only get to know the book through the review I'm probably not going to spend the money on it.
Really like your blog and made sure to follow you. Here's my FF:
Check it out if you have time :)

Reve @ YA Books said...

Haha, I know what you mean - I'm tempted to buy Modeland as well. But I think that's mainly because I have a secret love for Tyra and ANTM. I do have The Selection on pre-order, though, so we'll see how that goes XD.

New follower here! Happy Friday :).

I'm still going to buy The Selection even though I have been hearing some negative things about it..I love the cover and the plot sounds awesome so I will still be reading it!!

Happy reading and thanks for stopping by :)

Jessica@a GREAT read said...

Nice! If I really want to read a book, a bad review won't stop me. If I am skeptical about a book and it gets a few too many bad reviews, then it will likely stop me!

Thanks for visiting and following my blog!

Have a GREAT weekend!

NEW Follower :D

I really need to get around to reading the Uglies series! I've only heard good things about them. :]

Thanks for stopping by!

Jessica (Peace Love Books) said...

Same! I really want to read The Selection now after all of the controversy. Thanks for stopping by my FF :)

Jamie said...

Hey - if anything elicits a strong, personal response from a reviewer, even if it's negative, then i want to read the book, too.

Thanks for stopping by! Old follower.


Leah said...

:) Your layout is so cute!!

The Selection was a book I had wanted to read long before the whole fiasco started. That's one book where all the negativity has made me all the more eager to read it.


Rachel Cotterill said...

Following via Feature & Follow - nice to meet you!

Tarah Dunn said...

I'm tempted to pick up The Selection at the library, but I wouldn't buy it. Tostino's pizza rolls are really good, btw. Thanks for stopping by my post. New follower!
