Every few months a book comes along that everyone is talking - or at least blogging - about. Marisha Pessl’s book Special Topics in Calamity Physics was one. The Lovely Bones another. The Corrections. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. The Impressionist. White Teeth. Brick Lane. Need I go on?

Oprah will be announcing a new bookclub choice this Friday and no doubt that will be hyped to the heavens too.

So my question is simple, when a book is lauded here, there and everywhere, does it make you more or less likely to read it?

Basically, do you believe the hype? Yay or Nay and why?

[Don't forget it's Yay or Nay day at Hippyshopper, Bridalwave, Corrie Blog, Catwalk Queen, Kiss and Makeup, The Bag Lady, Shoewawa and Shiny Shiny, too!]
