I admit, I am a “phase” reader. There are times when all I read is a certain genre. It’s all I want to pick up and it’s all I’m excited about. Before I started with the Bookworms all I read was Mystery and Thrillers. Then I had a big phase when I only read historical fiction.
The years after Twilight was filled with Young Adult Paranormal! I wouldn’t even consider something else. It didn’t matter if it was Angels or Vampires or Fairies or whatever! Truly, this was a pretty long phase, I would even say the longest I had.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love this genre! One of my most anticipated books of 2013 involve Demons – Sweet Peril (Sequel to Sweet Evil), Mermen – Of Trition (Sequel of Of Poseidon) and more.. It will be most likely a genre I will always love!
But lately I found myself picking up more and more Contemporary books and … right now, I love them to pieces! Contemporary was something I would have never picked up a year ago.. What?! No Vampires? No paranormal element whatsoever? Nope.. not for me.
I tried to pingpoint when this started and I think it was when I read “From What I Remember…“ which was in April last year. This book opened my eyes! It was so smart, witty, funny and sexy that I barely slept when I read it! Then I read such fantastic books like “Meant To Be“ and “Catching Jordan” and I was hooked!
After this I picked up more and more Contemporaries until I found my love for New Adult books with “Beautiful Disaster“. This was finally the moment where nearly all I picked up was contemporary books.
So here I am completely and utterly hooked. I love the intensity of emotions and the genuine feelings. I love the troubles and the real life issues, problems and disasters. They are often filled with so many emotions and I didn’t realize until now how strong and powerful this genre is!
Right now, I feel comfortable in my phase but I’m sure at some point I might find myself into yet another phase!
So, what about you? Do you read all kind of books or are you such a phase-reader just like me? And, if so what kind of genere you dig now the most?
Paranormal, Dystopian, Contemporary, Historical. Mysteries, Horror?
