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


My answer will most likely be unpopular but, to be honest I don’t mind it at all. For an example one of my favorite series Fifty Shades of Grey began as a *gasp* Twilight fanfic. Without E.L. James using the idea in a contemporary romance role with a co-dependent couple with a flavor for KINK, I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of obsessing with my friends over Fifty Shades of Grey! ;) ♥♥



What about you? Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic? I would love to know your answers! Even if your not participating in FF or you don’t have a blog but your a reader, please share your answers with me!! Leave me a comment! Happy Friday!! ♥♥

    Hello MissVain :) yes, I am thinking your answer will be a little controversial today. I am an old follower.

    Here’s my
    FF post for this week.

    Have a fantastic Friday!

    Sometimes when reading the same genres, it can it repetitous; so I try and read a little bit of everything . It’ salsa not boring. Have a Good Friday.

    I swear those Twilight lunatics compare Twilight to anything that has romance in it. So annoying. Sometimes I wanna scream, “Get a life!” :)

    I really love AU-fanfictions, but I’m not sure about them getting published. I would definitely buy my favorite FF authors’ original fiction, but the fanfiction.. I don’t know. Often, the writing is different from OF, because there are so many things already established in the original. And so far, I haven’t managed to like published FF for more than a few weeks at best. :/

  5. I can’t say I agree. I am not too fond of fanfiction becoming published, nor was I a fan of Fifty Shades, but I don’t think your answer will be all that unpopular. After all, Fifty Shades is a pretty popular series and I think it goes to show that most people either don’t mind or don’t notice.

    Hopping through. Still need to read 50 Shades. I don’t think it’ll be my thing but I’m really curious. Waiting for it at the library.

    At times I lean toward these types of book (even mentioning in my Good Reads reviews “if you liked such & such book than this may be a book for you” …

    Good question
    Not sure what an FF is or anything but Facebook & Twitter share the books I read
    Good reads – BeckeyWhite

  9. new follower through email. I can be found and followed at bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com. I haven’t read any fan-fiction, so guess I can’t relate, but to each his/her own. We are all different and it depends on how well a retelling or a similar idea is written and delivered.

    Happy Reading!

  10. I don’t mind similar backgrounds/concepts as long as the author shows creativity in a major way. Using a basic idea as a starting point is fine as long as it escalates from there. I don’t think your answer is too controversial…
