My reading confessions
I confess that I.....Love paranormal romance but more times than not hate the book covers
Paranormal romance is my absolute favorite genre but oh wow, are there some bad book covers.
The cheesy cartoonish ones of the first few books in Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, the blah ones from Nalini Singh Psy-Changeling series (especially when compared to her lovely Guild Hunter covers) and the lackluster covers from super author Sherrilyn Kenyon are just a few where the saying it's what's inside that counts applies.
I confess that I.....Have never read a contemporary romance nor have I ever had the urge to
No thank you. I understand why to others this is their genre of choice but it's not for me. When I read I want to be taken completely away from the every day. Not that my life even remotely resembles that of heroines in those books but I need some alphas to have some kind of paranormal bite.
I confess that I.....Have never read Twilight or 50 Shades and plan to never pick up either
Would I have read them if the books haven't been crammed down my throat from every form of media? Perhaps but we'll never know.
I confess that I.....Did not like Zsadist from J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series for a very long time
This is my favorite PNR series but for the longest time I didn't like Zsadist. I just didn't understand why he's the favorite of so many people.
On my second reading of the series something changed. He became more appealing I suppose and as I reread each book, I liked him more and more. I even went back and read his short story that's in the readers guide. I still don't get why so many people love him. Yes, I know he's a tortured hero but they're ALL tortured heroes!
What about you? What are your reading confessions?
