On Reading Patterns

Hi all, Tahleen here. I don't know about any of you, but right now I'm in a kind of pattern with my reading choices. For some reason all I want to read right now are light, fluffy romances that are not hot and heavy. You know what I mean?

I think about all the review books I have, all the young adult titles I should read, all the books that I've had for forever, but all I can seem to do is go to Overdrive and download Love Inspired titles onto my nook (for free of course, since they're library books). Especially if they are Christmas books. I really like reading Christmas books during Christmastime.

Does this happen to anyone else? What books can't you seem to get enough of right now?

  1. Oh goodness, this SO happens to me! I get in the mood for something & it ends up being the only thing I will read. And if I try to force something else, I just... can't do it. I totally feel ya!

  2. This happens to me too. I have to say, I am usually always on a YA kick. But for a few weeks this winter I was on a cozy mysteries kick.

    Next year I am determined to space out my genres. Maybe read on YA, then a chick lit, then a mystery. Try to change up the pace some.

  3. Yes, it happens to me too. But if I am reading a very depressing book, I need to read an upbeat one at the same time.

  4. Oh yes, I go through moods on what I want to read. Sometimes I go through a ya fantasy kick, or a tudor kick.

    I've been reading mostly historical fiction this month, and oh what I would give to be able to binge on YA fantasy next moth. Except I have more historical and some literary fiction on schedule for next month.

  5. This happens to me too! I'm a sucker for Jane Austen sequels and such, so that's ususally what I crave when I'm on a genre kick!

  6. I get like that, too! Just recently, all I wanted to read was chick lit, and now all I want to read is fantasy. Go figure! (:

  7. I'm pretty sure everybody goes through this. I'm suffering from it right now, too. I have a huge stack of historical fictions to read. But I CANNOT stop reading YA anything. I want to go to the store and fill carts with new YA, when really? I'm too broke from the holidays to feed myself food, much less feed my YA obsession. Haha, but it's all good.

    Good topic for conversation!

  8. I don't know what sounds good right now, but nothing in my TBR pile looks appealing.

  10. This is a huge problem for me. I can't figure out what I want to read next because I have a ton of books I previously bought or loaned from the library but they're all much heavier than I'd like right now. Maybe Christmastime evokes a sense of love and romance that makes me want to read that? I dunno - there's just something about the world ending in a dystopia that doesn't sound so fascinating right now!

  11. I always have a bit of a tough time after Christmas deciding on what to read. But this time, I can't seem to even focus on reading. I've had three different books next to me for the past three days, and all I can seem to do is mess around on the computer and fall asleep all day long.

    Maybe next week, I'll get back into reading.

  12. That happens to me too. My biggest problem though is that after reading a great book, I always have trouble starting a new book, bacause all I really want, is to stay in that book I just read, and of course I can´t beacuse rereading it isn´t the same...

  13. I go through definite sci-fi kicks, particularly after reading anything too heavy. When I finished The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, I immediately re-read the entire Ender's Game series (original, now Shadow).

  14. I'm going to reblog this topic because I think I might have more to say than just one comment. Thanks for the idea! Watch for my post at http://bookishnerd.com/.

  16. Lately I am all about historical fiction and high fantasy, which is funny because I read those genres quite a bit when I was much younger and then didn't care about it for a long time and went to other genres. I guess I am going full circle.

  17. Yes! I'm in a rut like that right now. I've recently discovered dystopians and now I keep reading more of it.
    First it was the Hunger Games, then America Pacifica. Now I've managed to acquire the Uglies (and her sequels), Matched and Divergent.
    Which is great, except I think it is simultaneously annoying and enthralling me.

  18. I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way. Though now, I'm starting to move on to more substantive things, but I'm still not feeling in the mood for something heavy.

  19. Great post! This happens to me all the time! I'll get in the mood for something and read nothing but that genre until I'm thoroughly sick of it, then move on to my next mini-obsession. I try to force myself to read outside my comfort zone every now and again, but when I'm on a reading binge, nothing else will do!

  20. Great post! Sometimes this happens to people. Everyone gets into a random slump or pattern. =D

  21. When I was younger I read a lot of Stephen King and thriller/suspense novels. Now I am into YA novels with dystopian themes, but I can feel myself being pulled towards books with supernatural beings in them.

  22. This happens to me a lot! I'll be on a huge paranormal bent for months than all of a sudden I get burnt out and read only contemporaries! I'm smack dab in the middle of the Jessica Darling Series and loving it. When it ends I don't think I will be ready to say good bye to her or contemporary YA for a while:)
