Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?
A: In all honesty, no I don't mind! I guess the similarities in YA books got stemmed from Twilight and Harry Potter. Similar concepts and ideas started my love for Dark Romance since the Twilight Saga and got me reading the Morganville Vampires and Vampire Academy which are both brilliant books but they still have own uniqueness towards them. The similarities between them all made me want to read more of the same ideology and thoroughly enjoyed exploring them all.Though I have to say that I didn't enjoy Harry Potter as much as it was hyped up about! However, all the retelling or similar concepts for example Cassandra Claire's Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices, I absolutely loved! The concept a Victorian era mixed with a secret society of magic, tells you there is more ideas being explored every day but different and unique authors!In my opinion, authors use there influences and inspirations to highlight the similarities in the novels, but that isn't a bad thing! They expand and create new and fresh ideas to shelf! And I love experiencing and connecting with those authors and books!
