Follow Friday [1]

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by
parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
This week's question is:
Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?

No. As long as they bring something fresh. Maybe a new twist to it then it's ok. It's all about creativity and bringing something new to the table.  



What about you? Link me to your FF posts in the comment section. Please let me know if you're a new follower so I can return the favor.

  1. Agreed, too. I actually like to find something I already know (and like) in new stories, as long as it's not entirely the same story all over again. :)

  2. Definitely agree. Overlap doesn't matter so long as there is a twist somewhere in the story.

  3. Hi! I agree. As long as there is still something a bit different to the books I can still love them both in their own ways. :) New GFC Follower.
