I don’t know what’s going on with me but for some reason I’ve been on the wrong end of reading latelty. What I mean by that is that it seems I’ve lost my passion or my MOJO for reading.
I don’t know if it’s due to the types of books I’m reading, the cliches, or the overdone story lines? Either way I find myself flipping through the pages instead of enjoying them and letting them sink in like normal.
I write in the YA romance genre so it is only suiting that I also read in the romance genre. But having to experience the same plot over and over again is driving me BAH-NANAS.
Let’s observe, shall we?
♥”Boy meets girl. “
♥”Boy and girl fall hopelessly in love.”
♥”Some problem comes there way.”
♥”Get back together because they finally realize their love can conquer anything as long as they’re together.”
Yeah. Been there. Read that.
Don’t get me wrong I HEART this plot line but after reading it for the hundredth time only with different characters it starts to feel a bit. ..
And it breaks my heart to little pieces to say that but it’s the truth. I’m looking for more drama, trouble, breakups, and heart ache. Although the hot and steamy scenes are definelty a plus, don’t get me wrong.;)
What I’m trying to say is that too much of a lovey dovey book when the author only focuses on the romance side and forgets about the drama aspect, that gives the story that umph, it makes the story fall flat to me.
Over to you:
What recent books or genes have seemed stale to you as of recent? What genres do you recommend that would get me out of this rut? Any and all help would be awesometastical!
