Feature & Follow #18

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list! How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

And now the Random Question of this week:

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

As of now I can say I have not. Although I am tempted at times to try a lower rated book because it actually sparked my interest. I've had the reverse happen though, there was a book that many people liked, but I found it difficult to get through.

  1. Hi there!

    For me, I prefer to borrow the book, rather than spend money and be totally disappointed.

  2. Depending on what the reviewer mentions sometimes a bad review makes the book sound good! LOL Depending on my tastes.

  3. Good answer! Bad books should be borrowed not bought!

  4. New follower on GFC. I have a thing of buying books that are really popular, just to see what the fuss is about, even if a lot of people are giving it really negative reviews.

    I've had the same thing happen. My friend adored "The Ghost and the Goth" series and I really struggled to get through those books.

  7. Old follower hopping through. Just wanted to say: Have a great weekend! Oh and, heh, I actually do often read books because of negative ratings, though I don't recall ever buying one because of ONE negative review. *g*
