Okay…I seriously don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m a writer, for heaven’s sake. Therefore, I should be a reader, shouldn’t I? I used to LOVE reading! I guess it was 5 or 6 years ago now, I became an avid reader. I hadn’t been much of one before — maybe 10 books a year, if that. But then I found the romance genre and started devouring more like 30-40 books a year (which is a lot for me since I can be a slow reader)
When I started writing, it slowed a little bit to maybe 20 books a year. But ever since I had my daughter two years ago, I can probably count the number of books I’ve read to completion on one hand.
Well, that’s not entirely true. I do a good amount of beta reading for my fellow authors, and I have to say, I tend to prefer their work over what I’m buying from Amazon, B&N or iBooks. Granted, all their stuff ends up being at those outlets, since most of them are now well-known published authors, so I’m lucky enough to get sneak peaks.
But every time I open a book sample on my iPad, I get through maybe the first chapter and then I put it down. I don’t know what I’m looking for. A change in genre? Maybe, but that hasn’t proved successful yet. So maybe I haven’t found a genre I like. A return to my younger years? I used to LOVE those YA beach romances or Montana-rancher style contemporary romances, and part of me is craving that now. I just don’t know where to begin to look.
So I’m turning to you, dear readers, to help me get back on track. Recommend your favorite light-hearted, romantic books for me. Help me find the book(s) that will rekindle my love for reading! Please!! 🙂
