Now back to your regularly scheduled blog post :)
Hey, everyone. Today, I want to write about success. On Friday, I wrote a review of Divergent (Divergent Trilogy) by Veronica Roth, which I consider to be a huge success in the YA world.
A huge readership (every YA book blog I've seen)
295 amount of reviews on Amazon (226 of which are 5 star)
Everyone says GREAT things about it (me included)
Movie rights have been sold--not a guaranteed marker of greatness, but darn close to it for me (because how awesome is that?).
I'd say there's a lot of reasons to think that the Divergent (Divergent Trilogy) is an extremely successful book.
To me, success is about people liking your book and being passionate about it once they read it and having a large readership because people want to pass that magic on. The movie rights being sold is amazing, but having tons of people read it and like it will always be the most important factor of success, in my book.
What about you? What do you think constitutes success in the reading world? Can you name a showstopper book of success? I'm thinking Twilight [Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1)] (love it or hate it) and The Hunger Games (awesome). Let me know below.
Now, to leave you with a song to write by, "Imma Star" by Jeremih, where he explains success in a different arena :)
