Feature & Follow {1}

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  
"Increase Blog Followers, gain Book Blog Followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow!"

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

I think that every book mimics in some way the ideas of other books - whether it be in characters, or background or setting, etc...  It's what inspiration is all about.  No idea is truly an original idea - IMO.  In fact, most authors say that they got inspiration from X author.  It may be a very small part of what made up their own story, but the inspiration is still there.  So I don't mind it at all.  I would think that if I came across a book that was exactly like another with the exception of changing names and setting, that it would annoy the stew out of me, but I don't think I've ever read a book such as that.  None are coming to mind anyway.  

For my first time participating in F&F, I look forward to meeting all of you and following you back!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm following you back. I agree with you. I just can't stand if I pick the book up and think I've read this exact story before. It needs something different.
