Book tastes, much like food tastes, change over time. It's an inevitable change that occurs as we grow and as our feelings and views change as well. That being said, there are some things that simply never change. Those, at least in my opinion, are the true favorite things. For example, I've ALWAYS loved books with darker themes. When I was younger I loved The Series of Unfortunate Events. Now that I'm older, I still like darker books. AND, I'm actually re-reading The Bad Beginning for the BookTube-A-Thon next week! (Click HERE for more information on the BookTube-A-Thon) I also want to quickly point out that I-- like I've said MANY times before-- haven't always been the biggest reader. When I was younger I did love reading and I definitely had my go-to books. However, that's not to say that I've always read a lot, per say.
The first question on the prompt for this week is about whether or not you have a genre that is probably know as "your genre." My answer for this? Definitely.
As far as my book tastes changing goes, I'm not quite sure where to start. I don't know if they've changed all that much, but I'm sure they have. The main thing I can think of is that I definitely liked contemporary type books more when I was younger. In middle school, I would probably gravitate more towards contemporary and dystopian. Actually, now that I think about it, I've been really not into dystopian books as much as of recently. So, those are basically the only genres I can think of that I once liked and don't as much anymore. As for why? I'm not quite sure, to be honest. What about you guys?! What's your go-to genre? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear about your book tastes and how they've changed over time. And, don't forget to join us next week when we discuss "Spoilers!" A very controversial topic! Don't miss it. Thanks for stopping by!
