I had an interesting thought yesterday while my mind was wandering, and I thought it would make a good blog topic.
As a book blogger, not only do I write a lot of book reviews, but in order to hone my craft I read a lot of them too. And one of the things I regularly come across in the negative reviews I read is the topic of originality. The book wasn’t original enough. The idea wasn’t original. Etc. and etc. So here is my question for you, book readers.
What makes a book original for you and why? It’s a tough question isn’t it? Partly because I feel that there really aren’t any original ideas anymore. I can’t even think of my answer at the moment, but as soon as I figure it out, I’ll add it to the comments with you guys. You don’t have to answer right away if you need time to think. Take your time. But it is one of the things I’m really curious about.
