I’m currently on the run from the Amazon Empire. The Empire recently used it’s planet sized money to
destroy devour my previous safehouse: Goodreads.
I read a lot. Have a bit of a tendency to review as well. So…this is mostly a book review site. Unless its not. But I’m not taking review requests.
Cause sometimes I’ll write about whatever I feel like, book or no.
Things I [currently] like:
So, I’ll talk about that stuff. Unless I don’t.
That “life” part in the site title is all about flexibility, lol.
That awkward moment when you're reading a new book, and you realize you've already read it before, only it was written by someone else.
I got an interesting email, via my snarkycake blog, from a Concerned Reader.
While reading Trust Me by Kristin Mayer Concerned Reader got that same awkward sense of déjà vu. After going back through their recent reads they realized that there were some striking similarities between Mayer's book and Shawnté Borris' With Love.
I'm just going to paste in the bullet point list Concerned Reader sent with their email.
Now, it is reasonable to have some similarities between books in the same genre, but these are far from thematic similarities. This is just weird and worrisome. Not to mention the weirdness of the same editor working on both books.
Concerned Reader wondered if this qualified as plagiarism, it does not, but it is still extremely questionable.
It's enough to put me off reading any of Mayer's work.
