Do you ever get tired of reading the same type of book? For people who read all the time or who read books in mostly the same genre, you can start to see a lot of similarities.
I think I’m going to take a break soon from books where:
180 to 90 percent of the book takes place in a high school.
2A girl is torn between 2 guys and absolutely cannot choose between them until the last 5 pages of the last book in the series (I can’t believe I even typed that! I adore love triangles- the only geometry I understand ).
3A mysterious cutie has a dark secret. This is getting to be ridiculously overdone.
4The characters are reading The Metamorphosis. Nightshade and The Mephisto Covenant both involved high school students who had to read this book for a class. The symbolism of this is pretty obvious in both books. Ok, this really isn’t a deal breaker, but it’s just a weird coincidence!
It’s not that I don’t love books with these things in it, but I’m just getting burned out from reading similar topics or story lines in SO MANY books.
My solution is to spice it up a bit, and add in books from genres that I either don’t read very much of or just switch to more adult fantasy books for a little bit.
Have you ever felt this way? What did you do to get out of “same ole, same ole” slump?
