Musing Mondays – Hype

Musing Mondays is hosted by http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/

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?

Hype doesn’t influence my reading in any significant way.  Sometimes, if I get too annoyed by a certain book being shoved down my throat, metaphorically speaking of course, I may just push back reading it for a while.  But that doesn’t happen very often.  If a book catches my attention, I will eventually read it whether or not it is popular.  The story is what catches my eye, not the hype about the story.  I don’t care how popular something is, if it’s not something that I would like to read I won’t read it just for the sake of saying that I read it.
