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?
I generally get turned off by the over hyped books ,Da Vinci was ok though,HP i didn’t read and still haven’t btw. Twilight hasn’t got my interest either .
The HenryVIII/Tudor’s thing turned me right off ,I watched some of series one and found it boring and rather light weight!I also think doing the Tudor’s/HenryVIII slightly lazy ,has been done at least seven or eight times before .The C.J Sansom I’m considering btw.
(I do have “The White Queen” on my tbr pile at the moment.)
I like discovering new authors to follow .
