Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading trends…
Do you find yourself forming trends in your reading? Is this a conscious act, influenced by either your own interests or current publishing fads?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
I did a meme this week, and my answers prompted Elena to point out that I seemed to have a thing for fairies. And like I told her, yes, I do have a fondness for fairy stories, this having been given a huge boost by my seven-year-old cousin’s insistence on playing fairies – but I had not actually realised that this was the case.
So I suppose my answer is yes-no-yes.
Yes, I do form trends in my book choices. This year it is fairies:
- Hannah the Happy Ever After Fairy
No, it is rarely a conscience act, I do tend to get sucked in by the fairy books (feel free to recommend some!) but I don’t usually seek them out.
And, yes, I am probably influenced by publishing trends, in as much as there is an abundance of fairyish stories lately, at least in childrens or YA fiction.
