It has been a while since I have posted, and I hate taking these long breaks from my blog, because it is my “safe” zone. But we cant always control life, and so I have had to take a break. I haven’t really read many books which kinda makes me depressed because I have bought SO many, and haven’t read a single one.
I think lately my taste in reading has changed a bit as well. Does anyone ever have that happen? I feel so burned out of YA because most dystopians are the same thing but different characters, the romance novels are all the same, again just different characters. NA the only author that appeals to me lately is Colleen Hoover and I’ve read Ugly Love 4 times already, so I need to cool down, but I feel like even that genre is getting repetitive. So what I did was start buying books that interested in me in the more adult genre, such as Patricia Briggs, Gena Showalter etc. I will Always Love YA and NA, but does anyone ever just get burned out? The problem I’m having with reading the new books in the genre I have bought is Im scared I will get disappointed. Now I know that’s irrational, but reading is something I love to do, and I want to be happy after Im done with a book and sometimes starting a new book is the hardest thing for me. Does anyone ever have problems starting a new book? I’m also really terrible at ending series, I don’t know why but I have SO many series I just have the last book to finish. But lately I just haven’t had the motivation to start or finish any book.
Another problem I have lately is Im really interested in the Student/Teacher romance (NA of course, I dont want a story about a 15 year old and a 22 yr old teacher… Creeper) and I feel like I’ve already read all the books in that category. And for some reason that’s the catergory I REALLY want to read now, but I can’t find any new books. Any Ideas???
Does anyone have any of these problems? Getting burned out, the repetitiveness of certain genres and sub genres, and the pain to start a new book? I don’t want to feel alone, lol!
