Book Blogger Hop: "Viral" Books

Book Blogger Hop

This Week's Question:
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?

My Answer:
Nope. I am very selective about what I read, making sure that I read only clean books. So I very rarely read the books that are hyped up, and never without checking about their content.  I will however read them if I find they are clean and their plot interests me, even if they aren't in my normal genre. I hadn't read Dystopian before but I wanted to see The Hunger Games movie so I decided to read the books and I actually found that I liked that genre. So in short I don't read books just because everyone else is, I only pick them up if they sound good to me!

Great answer Abbi! I am very much the same. I definitively read the description and check with my book buddies who like the same books as me to see what they thought of it but unless I am truly interested in it, I don't read it.

I definitely have to be interested in the description and genre first.

I fudged my html...I don't generally read a book just because it's viral. Fifty Shades. No. The subject matter makes me uncomfortable. Hunger Games doesn't really sound up my alley. Description and generally no sci-fi or horror. Or "mommy porn". I absolutely love to stop by your site and have awarded you the Liebster Blog Award. Have a terrific weekend and keep up the great work :)
