I am well aware that the advance reviews for this book are AWFUL.  Nobody likes it.  I think that's maybe why I want to read it so much - to see if I agree or disagree with the horrible things people are saying about it.  It's kind of an odd way of deciding to read a book, but whatever works, right?


  1. Sounds like a good summer read. It might be an odd way to decide to read a book, but bad reviews get me interested in a book sometimes as well. I guess sometimes any publicity (even bad) is good publicity.

    Drop by my WoW?

  3. Sounds pretty interesting. That's interesting that no one like the review copies...

  4. Sounds like a interesting read, but I must admit that hearing that it has been getting mostly bad reviews makes me much more interesting in reading it, just to see why so many people disliked it. Great wow pick. I'm adding it to my TBR wishlist. I'm also a new GFC follower. Natasha @ Paranormal Goddess Book Blog - My Waiting On Wednesday Post

  5. You know, sometimes so many negative reviews of a book are intriguing!!
