'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Feature and Follow #10
So here's Fridays meme: Feature and Follow hosted over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The aim of the blog is to gain new followers! :) How to participate:
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.
What sets this Hop apart from others, is the Feature. Each week they will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow the Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.
Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?
Not at all, in fact I'm terrible for hoarding very similar books. If I find a book that I love I then go on a hunt for something very similar. It took me a very long time to find something up there with Kelley Armstrong (she popped my paranormal virginity!) when I initially started book hunting but now it's like second nature. It's brilliant in a way, but I also limit myself in others. Now that I'm getting older I like to think I'm branching out a bit into other genres but who knows :P.
