Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop


Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by the wonderful Jennifer from Crazy For Books and Follow Friday is hosted by two great bloggers Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read

So starting with The Book Blogger Hop: This weeks question comes from Steph at The Fake Steph


Question: Is there a book series that you’re not totally into, but still keep buying new releases because you love the covers?


Answer: Oh definitely. I hate to admit it but it would have to be the Fallen series by Lauren Kate and The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I have read book 1 in both series' and I just cannot seem to get myself to continue reading but I adore the covers so I keep purchasing them. Hm.. maybe I should give these guys another chance?

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

Answer: To be honest with you know I don't. I think it's great the way an author can take a classic idea and make it all their own. Take Cinder by Marissa Meyer for example. I absolutely loved that book. She took such a classic story and put the most modern twist to it. 


Rules:

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
    • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee &Alison Can Read}

    • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
    • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed

  2. I agree with you 100%. Cinder was a great book and definitely a good example of a modern take on a classic fairytale!

  5. I loved Cinder as well! I loved that she took the classic Cinderella story and put cyborgs and crazy lunar people in it. Can't wait for the next book in the Lunar Chronicles to come out (:

    Have a great day Kristen!

  6. I love the Fallen series covers too! The last book has been just sitting there since I kind of lost interest in the series. New follower =) My Friday Hop

  7. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cinder!
    I agree with you.
    BUT. The thing I don't like about some other books was the complete copying. It's like, nothing happened.
    That why I loved Cinder. Because Marissa put a lot of amazing twists on it. She left her own mark.
    Here's my FF.
    Have a great day!

  9. Hence, you have to make sure that the confidentiality of your credit/debit card information would
    be kept with utmost secrecy before posting any of that information on any website.
    Bradbury aroused the suspicion of the FBI due to his outspoken criticism of the U.
    S. government and the House Un-American Activities Committee HUAC, which was investigating real and
    suspected communists in America. In a full-page
    ad in Variety, Bradbury had denounced the committee's probes as claptrap and nonsense and several informants in Hollywood also voiced their suspicions about the acclaimed writer to the bureau. http://www.plurk.com/DominickX8 Free Toll Free reverse lookups by Capital and Intelious are frauds. They find info for the number but want $$$ for the name of the business or person that has it. This isn't free.
    These two companies who are making the claim to provide free services should be blacklisted.

    Interestingly, Goldman Sachs, some of whose employees people suspect will be named in the investigation,
    was said to invest in the fund this summer. Reportedly,
    Goldman's buyout unit purchased a minority stake in the fund.
