Enjoy the hop!!
I'm the exact same way.
I don't usually rush out and get a book unless it's highly recommended by a friend. I probably would never have read Hunger Games as I usually don't drift far away from mysteries, except my son liked it and passed it on to me.Ann
I hear ya! Well said.My Hop
If it is a genre I have no interest in absolutely not, I don't even read those reviews truthfully. If it is a genre that has piqued my interest I will probably choose the hyped book.
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Generally I am put off by the hype, but if lots of people whose opinions I trust rave about a book or series, then I'll give it a go. (The Hunger Games and Song of Ice and Fire are examples of these.) I had too many people tell me I ought to read them.
Great answer! If it's something I know I won't like, why read it? And if I'm not sure... Library!Check out my post.
Love your answer :) I'm the same, I won't waste time on a book just because of hypehttp://therelentlessreader.blogspot.com/
Perfectly stated :)I tend to avoid hyped up books until the hype is over if it's a book that interests me. If its not a book that interests me I won't read it at all. Life's too short to read books just because everyone else is. You have to read what interests you.
