If you're interested in participating, here's what you do:
1. Post on your blog answering this 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 your genre?2. Enter the link to your post in the linky list at Crazy For Books.
3. Visit the other blogs on the list, spending quality time getting to know the people you are visiting. Don't just visit the post with the question, but click around and read some of the blogger's other content, too! This Hop isn't about the number of people you can visit, but the quality of each visit.
So my answer for today's question is: Nope. Not usually. I try to read the books that I know I'll like, and a lot of the hyped up books have fallen flat for me (like Fallen). But I try not to judge a book by the hype, because there have been a lot that I have liked as well, even if it took me a while to get to them (like The Hunger Games). I definitely notice books because of the hype, but I like to do some research before I devote any amount of time to them, so I don't end up with something like Fifty Shades of Grey.
And that's the Book Blogger Hop! If you participate, I'd love to see how you answered the question, so leave me a link to your post!
Thanks for reading!
