I was never a major Contemporary fan. Before I started blogging I though it was boring, depressing and uninteresting. I liked to stick to Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy and all the Paranormal books in YA. I’d read Contemporary before and found it so disappointing.
Last year however, this all changed. Other bloggers started recommending me books outside of Paranormal, and I started to read out of my comfort zone. I was really surprised, because I found I was enjoying myself! Even though I read so much more Contemporary last year than I ever have, I still wouldn’t say I read it regularly. However, this year (even though Paranormal will always be my fav!) I have been in a complete Contemporary kick. I’ve read so many more than I usually do; including Skin Deep by Laura Jarratt, Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller and so many more. Mostly they have romance in them, because that’s the way I like them, but it’s still surprising for me.
I will continue to read this genre until I get bored, and I’m really enjoying all of the recommendations people are giving me! It also makes me want to read some Adult Contemporary, something I’ve read but never enjoyed. This just leads me to think that I haven’t found the right book yet. There is still a lot in Contemporary that I’m not ready to try yet, books that I might never like, but as long as I’m stretching myself, I’m okay with that.
Do you have manic phrases where you read loads in one genre? Can you give me some Contemporary rec?
