This week’s musing asks…
What do you think of books that receive a lot of hype? (think of the “Twilight” saga, or “Harry Potter”, or “The Da Vinci Code”). Do you read them? Why, or why not?
Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
So this is something new for Kate's Library. I found myself always interested to read the "musings" of other people, so I traded in "Teaser Tuesday" for "Musing Mondays". :)
I'm always a little skeptical over books that receive a lot of hype. I like to check it out and see the opinions of other readers whom I respect. I do tend to give things a try, though. I read the "Twilight" books (after noticing ALL of the 7th grade girls in my class were reading it in their spare time - I had to try it out!), I loved "Harry Potter" although I didn't read it until my friend and fellow reader Gabby insisted that it was worthwhile.
I put "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" on my TBR pile because of all the hype, but now I'm not so sure... I'll let it sit there awhile.
What do you think? Feel free to comment, or if you are a blogger, post a link to YOUR musing!
Have a great start to the week, everyone!
