As I mentioned in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, I’ve branched out a lot in the last six months or so, in terms of reading.
I used to read young adult (YA) or middle grade (MG) fantasy, the classics and a small amount of adult fantasy, and that was it,
Now, I read the YA “issues” books, a small amount of YA romance, a small amount of YA historical fiction, a bit of cosy crime, some literary fiction, and some steampunk, as well. I’m also delving into YA dystopia, and sci-fi (both adult and YA).
I’m too new at dystopia to say whether it’s working for me or not yet, but sci-fi is very hit and miss.
Vampires were new to me a year ago, but I enjoy some vampire fiction now. I’m a big fan of Vampire Academy, but I didn’t like House of Night or True Blood. I like vampires in books where there are lots of types of supernatural creatures, a lot more, I guess.
I’m not really into paranormal romance, unless there’s a lot more to the story. I don’t usually like the whole angel/devil thing either, yet I love Cassandra Clare and Laini Taylor.
What can I say? I’m trying pretty much everything lately, although I do have genres I won’t touch. (I have tried them, and they are not for me.)
What’s outside your comfort zone? What used to be, but isn’t any more? How widely or specifically do you read?
