Feature & Follow #15

Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community.

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

A: No I don't really mind books with similar ideas to other books as long as it has something original in it. Otherwise it would be like I'm reading the same book again. A few connections here and there are fine especially if I love the book that its being connected to.

But it seems like there's a ton of books (mostly paranormal) that have the same kind of story line. No I do not want to read more than one Twilight, one was more than enough for me. On the other hand I absolutely love retellings as long as there is some twist to the story.

So basically books that are sort of similar to other books can sometimes be ok, but when it is painfully obvious that it is really similar to another book then it isn't ok for me.

What about you?

Similar concepts don't really bother me, either :)

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

I like your answer and agree that if it's something original, I'm usually for it; it just depends.
