Book Blogger Hop: June 28-July 4, 2013

So would you read a book just because of the hype?

Yes, I would and I have.  However, I am wise enough to realize that just because there is tons of hype, it does not necessarily mean I will like the book, nor that I will finish it!

Happy Reading and Happy Blogoversary to

Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!


  1. I agree...I check out the book but don't read it if I know it isn't for me.

    Stop by for my full answer if you like.

    Happy Hopping!!

  2. Yes, the hype does not determine if the book is good or if it's your taste.

  3. Absolutely! There are two genres I totally refuse to read: erotica and horror. No amount of hype will get me to read any book in either of the two. Also, NO e-books for me, either, hype or no hype!

    Happy Reading!! :)

  4. Great Answer!
    Have a good weekend :)

  5. I too have read books that had been hyped about but they were books that I liked the synopsis of, it wasn't something that I just picked up specifically because of the hype...if that makes sense LOL
