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


One and only once! 

Mostly I will lose my interest in a book after I read a bad review, simply because I couldn't get the 'bad' comments out of my head. But this book was an exception. I really wanted to read it for myself even though I've heard many negative reviews on it. But I remembered reading one good one, and that was what pushed me to buy it. 

In the end, I wouldn't say I love it, but it was definitely a great read! 

Please leave a link and I'll be sure to drop by!

Happy Friday!
