I read a lot. That’s no secret. I’ll very easily get through two or three novels a week. Sometimes more if what I’m reading is good enough to devour in one sitting.
But while I read a lot… I don’t necessarily read widely. I know what I like, so I’ll read a lot of young adult and new adult novels. I prioritise contemporary and romance novels over genres like high fantasy, horror and thrillers. I always pick up light chick-lit novels and generally read books with high ratings on GoodReads.
To me, reading is one of the very best things you can do… but… I think I need to get out of my comfort zone a little! I started reading a new book last night which is Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. It has a love interest that is deaf. I just finished Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan, whose main love interest was also deaf… I feel like I’m reading in circles!!!
Do you ever feel like you’ve out-read your genre of choice? Do they all start to feel the same after a while? Do you read across multiple age categories and genres? Or do you stick to one or two?
I have to say… I really feel like reading something completely different! Expand my horizons a little.
