Musing Mondays - Reading Trends

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading trends…


Do you find yourself forming trends in your reading? Is this a conscience act, influenced by either your own interests or current publishing fads?


My answer...

I do tend to have reading trends. It's not something I consciously think about, but if I read a certain genre or storyline and enjoy it, then I'm always looking for more to read just like it. It only lasts until I get bored and then the next trend starts :)

At the beginning of summer, I was reading books set on beaches or with a summer-type theme. As we get closer to fall, I'm kind of done with the summer books, although I didn't read all the ones I wanted to. Now with October coming up, I want to read spooky type of books, but that won't last much past Halloween.

For me, it usually has nothing to do with the current publishing fads. I don't always like the latest fad. I end up just getting mad that the publishers are trying to shove their latest hype down my throat. LOL I like to make up my own mind :)
