Patterns

It’s funny how books that you read tend to come in patterns.

For awhile there, I was giving five stars to every book I read and had started to worry if it would actually detract from the legitimacy of this blog. If I have any.

Then I remembered that I don’t care.

I only write for me, and while I love that at least a few other people are getting something out of these words, I only write for me, not to please any one else. So I kept posting those positive reviews.

Now, I’m in a slump. I haven’t been posting reviews to the books I’ve read because I was worried that my personal life was colouring the books I was reading.

Was I too stressed to sit and relax, enjoy a good book?

Maybe I’m just being too negative and hard on authors, I’ve had a lot of my mind lately.

Maybe I’m just not in the mood? Have I read too many books in this sub-genre lately? This is just a slump, right?

Well, it hasn’t passed and I don’t think it’s me… at least not entirely. I am going to try to break out of the genre rut I have been in lately. And I am sure that there are a million amazing authors out there, even in romance/erotica, that I haven’t even heard of, but lately, it seems like I’ve read them all and they’ve peaked.

So fair warning, there are new reviews coming and not a one is * * * * *.

I have been re-reading some old favourites lately to compensate for the disappointing crop of recent finds, and I will post reviews of those as I go, since I read them before I started this blog.

And hopefully this bad run ends soon!!! I started listening to A Feast for Crows last week at work (George Martin), which is not exactly what one would call “romance”, so I’ll break out of the rut by force, if need be.
