Blog Hop

Happy Friday Book Blogger Friends!

Jen at Crazy-for-Books is the hostess with the mostess and this week asks us:

When a book goes “viral” (Hunger Games, Fifty Shades, Twilight), do you rush out to read it like everyone else, even if it’s not in your typical genre?

Typically, no. I refuse to read Twilight (as I mentioned in this blog hop here) and Fifty Shades was the first hyped up book I've read in a really long time... and honestly, I didn't really like it.  Fifty Shades was out of my typical genre and it reminded me why I don't read "erotic romance".  See my thoughts here. I didn't read Harry Potter until long after it had already gone viral. In general, I'm not big on the hyped-up book wagon.

write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow


  1. I did read Twilight, but before I knew about it, still unsure about 50 shades and I forgot about Harry Potter but I read that after watching the first movie not really because of the hype.

    Thanks for stopping by, Following back

  2. My aunt had bought me all the Harry Potter books when I was little and I read some but not the whole series, then some movies came out and I read the whole series
    Thanks for coming by my blog!

  3. I'll never read FIFTY SHADES no matter how much hype it gets. I just don't do erotica at all. With other hyped-up books, it just depends.

    Happy hopping!

  4. I did read twilight before the craziness of the movies hit. I however have not read Harry Potter, yet. I say yet because alot of book get way over hyped and I dont want to go into that book with higher than normal expectations.
    My Hop

  5. I read Twilight before all the hype, but I've always been a Harry Potter fan :) But generally I don't read books just because of the hype.

    Check out my post.

  6. Thank you for stopping by Impressions In Ink and leaving a comment!

  7. I do end up reading the 'hyped' books eventually, just when they are hyped. I'm usually busy reading something else. =)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  8. I can't believe I found someone else who didn't like Fifty Shades. I thought I was the only one. You are better than me, though, because you read the whole series. I didn't, although I guess I'll get back to it.

  9. You sound just like me Jenna :) I don't give into the hype either.


  10. I don't rush out no, if I want to read them,then will read them in my own time. I said I would never read twilight, didn't interest me at all but a few mths ago I ended up watching the movie. I really enjoyed it and was shocked so I thought right before I watch the other films I must read the series. I have eing on pg 100 on the first bk for mths-just haven't picked it bck up!

    I haven't read the hunger games yet, I will eventually. I haven't read fifty shades, my friend borrowed them me but I don't know whether to bother.

    I really dislike hype! If sum thing is hyped I stay away! Lol

  11. I fall victim to hype sometimes, but I try to stick within my genres that I like.
