So why did my brain chose to say that sentence? Why did it forget about the one-stars and the rant inducers?
I think it's because the amount of feelings involved. A truly bad book brings out my possibly most passionate side. I can talk about my most hated books far longer than my favorite (aside for Harry Potter, which I can discuss and re-discuss a zillion times and still I'll have more to say).
And those books... they don't normally even get a review from me. Meaning, they don't get any publication from me. Even if I did write a review, I'm not going to really remember the book unless someone asks me about it specifically and I looked at it on GR.
They're never going to be the first to pop to my head (on any side of the scale).
So what's actually worse? Raising a storm of negative feelings to create the rant of the century with, or no feelings at all?
