Sunday Salon - Changes in reading tastes

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, just click the button above.

It was a slow reading week for me. I only finished one book "Living Dead in Dallas" by Charlaine Harris. I did start to listen to the audio version of James Patterson's "Step On A Crack" (the first in his Michael Bennett series) and I'm reading "7th Heaven" by James Patterson (Women's Murder Club Series). So, I'm overdosing on James Patterson this week. LOL I do have several books waiting for my review, but I have to finish these first because they are due back to the library.

For some reason I've been thinking about the changes in my reading tastes over the years. I used to love Harlequin Romances and could devour them. I mean the original HR series - the sweeter stories. Over the years Harlequin expanded to longer books and spicier ones...with their expansion, my tastes expanded as well. The longer books - with more of a plot to them - are more to my tastes now.

Besides Harlequin, I used to love paranormal books - vampires, werewolves, etc. etc. I loved them all. Now, I do enjoy some paranormal books, but not as much as I used to. I, also, loved western romances and now not so much.

I do read all kinds of books, including the ones I mentioned, but my reading tastes have changed.

Also, thanks to the blogging world, I'm more willing to read books I never would have read before. I have 4 Jane Austen books on my Nook waiting to be read. I never would have even tried them before, which is strange since my original reading genre of choice was romance - another change because my reading genre of choice now is mystery and suspense.

I hope everyone has a great week!
