I can really go through reading phases with genres, and moods for books can really change at times.
I found myself in a bit of a reading slump that even one of my Cookbook Nook reads waiting on my shelf couldn’t solve (great reads usually to me in the cozy mystery department)
I needed a book that would grip me, one of those ones you just can’t put down easily. One where you just need to know what happens as soon as you can.
My YA genre of books has been narrowed down on my shelf to more of my favourites, It has in the past held some books that I know gripped me,my biggest complaint with the YA genre is the amount of cliff-hanger endings and series of books, the way some series start well and then just seem to go on forever – BUT NOT in a GOOD WAY!
I hear the ‘Fallen’ Books are now a movie, I would love to see it – I loved that series years ago – but never made it till the end before I lost interest, the best thing sometimes is to read as many as can while in the mood and if a series reached its conclusion more the better! (sometimes you wait SO long you just forget why you loved it)
Well, I spent the last few days reading some new (to me) YA fiction and it (mostly) did NOT disappoint!
I had three books to read and one was middle or end of series but 2 out of the three were BRILLIANT reads, really page turning and exciting. The one I felt I most wanted to read is to be a DNF (did not finish!) so it just shows you , that you can’t really tell.
Some of the covers are fantastic too, full of drama or interesting, that’s something I like over the kindle books.
After struggling to read a book of about 250 pages over a month – I read around 650 in about 2 days as the writing was just that good and … I guess I was in the mood for the genre.
I partly ‘blame’ Booktube’ – It is full of enthusiasm for YA genre reads and introduced me to more I am interested in reading….that though is a topic enough for one blog piece!
