Feature & Follow Friday (20)

What is Feature & follow?

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This weeks question

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

A: Okay I'm in two minds about this question. On the one hand it's been said that there are only truly about 6 (or is it 8??) plots in the world, so we are bound to see things coming up again! Therefore in it inevitable that the same stuff will come around.

On the other hand I don't like it when a novel is a clear copy of another! There is a big difference between this and generalised. There is no reason for anyone to outright copy another book. It's coming up with the original take on something that makes the difference!

What do you think?


  1. I gave four answers for the four parts of this question. I think there is acceptable borrowing and unacceptable borrowing.

  3. I agree with your answer. No plot or story is truly unique, but books that are obviously copies of others? That's a no for me. New follower :)

  4. Hi,

    I'm enjoying this blog hop - my first! I just linked to your site, which looks really interesting.

    Kind regards,

  5. True! Every story we read has been done before, so nothing really is original. It's the imagination, and creativity of the author that counts.
