Ah, been a while since I did one of these.
Anyway, as you all know, Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, and is all about spreading some blogosphere love.
The question for this week is:
Q. Have You Ever Bought a Book Because of a Bad Review?
A: Yes, I bought the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare after one of my good friends read the book and trashed it so much that I just HAD to read it. Of course, her being a Harry Potter fan and fan-fiction writer was the main problem here: she had heard about the whole plagiarism fiasco and we had both read Cassandra's HP fanfic- the Draco Trilogy- and she thought the Mortal Instruments was basically a recycling of DT.
Anyway, I read the book and sort of liked it: it was mindless fun if you ignored all the glamour-people and HP comparisons and glitter fizz. I liked Magnus Bane, at least.
Leave your FF links :) Happy Follow Friday!
