Wow, I've been a lax blogger lately. I guess it's summer, huh?
So here's what I'm thinking today. I've decided that I'm just plain tired of the supernatural/paranormal genre. I know, many of you have arrived at this place long ago, but I always thought I'd hang out in this genre for a quite awhile. But, I've changed my mind. I need a long, long break from it.
Many of you have raved about The Demon's Lexicon. So I tried it and after 60 or so pages I was... bored. So since it's due (make that overdue) at the library, I'm taking it back.
Many of you have raved about City of Bones and accompanying series. So I tried it. At first, it was okay, but after 100 pages, I'm... bored again. Whoa, it's so very complicated these magical worlds. My head is spinning. So, since it's due (overdue) at the library, I'm taking it back too!
I've also read the first chapter or so of Spells and so far haven't been grabbed. Since I bought the book, I will read it. But have put it aside for now.
Captivate is going okay, but I put it on the treadmill and it's been sitting there awhile. I think I'll upgrade it to the book of focus and finish it soon. It's a borrowed book, so it needs to be read and returned!
Now, my problem is to determine if this is a mood thing... or a sick-of-a-genre thing. My guess is that I'll try these DNF books another day. But I'm going to give it a long awhile. I really truly think I've been supernatural-ed out for the time being and I want books about realness.
So I'm off to the library to get that cowboy book that Susan suggested.
But there's another dilemma. I also have Shiver on hold.
What do you think? Is it just a mood thing? Or something bigger than that? Is there a reason I should NOT leave these particular books as a DNF?
