Booking Through Thursday 19
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer. This weeks question is:
Do you ever feel like you’re in a reading rut? That you don’t read enough variety? That you need to branch out, spread your literary wings and explore other genres, flavors, styles?
Yes I feel like I'm in a reading rut all the time. Don't get me wrong I read all kinds of books and there's no genre I won't read but I do have phases where I will only be reading one type of book for weeks on end and end up getting tired of it.
I feel bad for not reading more classics and literary books but I just tell myself that I read for pleasure and if the books I read make me happy then what does it matter. There are some weeks where I can't find anything that interests me and I end up reading nothing - those are the worst weeks. I usually have to go back to an old favourite to get me into the reading mood again.
I do however have one permanent rut that I wish I could get out of and that is is that I only like books with happy endings yes I know it's stupid but I can't help it. If I am going to get invested in these characters lives like to know that it all ends well for them.
That's all for now.
