Booking Through Thursday #13 – Trends

Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance?

The simple, and perhaps obvious answer, is yes!  My habits tend to fluctuate regularly, not only in what I read but in how much I read.  This past month has been a bad month, and I know I’ve said this time and time again on here but it’s here again.  I seem to have readers block now, for some reason i cannot get into anything I’m reading or try to read.  I hope this passes soon because it’s getting really annoying.

As for what I read I tend to go back and forth between fiction and non-fiction.  Right now I’m reading a lot of graphic novels, and loving them.  I’m not sure what it is about this genre but I cannot seem to get enough of them.  These are the only things I can seem to get read, maybe because they are quick.  I should also say that each one I pick up seems to be substantially greater than the last.

I generally read things that get me thinking but there are times, and I’m sure we all have them, that I need something that is mind numbing.  This happens every few months, it’s usually at this time that I read something easy and can get right back into my usual reading.  As I’ve said before, it’s not working this time around.

I keep trying to challenge myself to read something different to, because there is nothing I hate more than getting into a rut.  In my desire to push the so called envelope I’ve joined a number of challenges.  These often force me to keep me reading and finishes things I don’t even like.  so, I’m starting to feel the pull to get more read these days.  I hope things change soon.
