Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?
Not really. Well, I guess it depends. If it’s a theme that I love in books, I usually can’t get enough of it. But I don’t want to feel like I am reading almost the exact same thing of another book.
I absolutely love fairytale retellings. Fairytales are perfect for retellings because there isn’t a lot of character development in the actual tale. Which makes them perfect for retellings! I do like other book retellings (Prom and Prejudice, Jane) but they are more difficult to do well, I think.
I’ve not read any published fanfiction.
What do you guys think?
