Before I started blogging, I used to read books that were highly rated on GoodReads. I’d pick up the books that everyone was raving about, that were up the top of Listopia lists, and in the top 10 new releases for the month or the year.
Since starting this blog however, that has sort of gone out the window. Mainly because I receive review copies from publishers before they are released, so suddenly I’m reading books where I have no clue whether they are going to be good or not. Instead of reading books I know are quality, I’m the one deciding whether they are or not for others.
Sometimes it’s rewarding and sometimes it’s like wading through a lot of average stuff. But I like it, because it forces me out of my comfort zone.
How often do you read out of your comfort zone?
