Feature & Follow

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #122   

Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?

A: I don't mind.  I read a lot of books that are similar in one way or another.  As long as they bring some of their own ideas and change it up a bit, I'm alright with it.    

Have a great weekend!

  3. I agree - I usually don't mind as long as there is some originality - something different, even if the books are a similar concept.

  4. I'm okay with some similarities but there comes a point when it's too much. I'm totally opposed to republishing fanfiction and pretending it's original fiction though. Just not okay.

    My follow friday! Please visit!

  6. I agree! I don't mind as long as there seems to be some original thought put into the story.

  7. I really enjoy some retellings, but I have to agree--if there isn't something new, or a really compelling character to draw me in, it gets old really fast!
