Follow Me Friday (14)

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

My Answer: No I do not mind at all! In fact one of my favorite things to read is Fairytale Retellings! I personally like to read different authors takes on situations, characters, and settings that have been used over and over again. Some stories may be based around the same ideas and concepts, but no one story is the same. They all have characteristics that make them different, and that is part of the fun!


  1. I feel exactly the same way! I can't get enough of retellings and I think they're all so amazing! Great answer :)

    Here's my FF!

    ps. Your blog is so adorable!! I can't believe I haven't seen it before! I'm definitely a new follower :)

  2. I don't really mind either as long as each book has a unique voice.

  7. I also LOVE fairytale retellings! (God, I'm seeing a LOT of peeps who are like me. I thought I was the only one. I feel like I could cry. LOL)
    But when it comes to books that are not fairytales and they have the same theme and story from other books, it sucked.
    Here's my FF.
    Have a great day!

  8. The picture is so true. I love a happy ending just but the story should be special too.
