BTT: Trends

| | Comments (0)

From Booking Through Thursday:

Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance?

Science fiction is a constant that holds. As long as new science fiction books come in, I'll keep on reading them. I used to devour all fantasy books I found, then I kind of got bored, or the massive series turned me off. Now I've been returning to fantasy, reading more of the new fantasy novels I've found which are often, actually, quite good.

I've enjoyed more non-fiction than before, and a wider range of subjects too. Whether I like to read challenging or easy, light or dark, funny or serious, is a short-term thing, not something that goes in long-term trends.
