This weeks topic is:
Do you feel pressure to read more in genres that other bloggers read?
No, not at all. I do feel excited to read more in other genres because there are bloggers that lead me to them, but not because I feel pressured to. Just a desire. I have been watching a lot of youTube book reviewers lately, and most of the channels that pop up focus on YA, particularly YA Fantasy. And again, while it doesn’t make me feel pressured, it does make me feel like I could be missing out on some phenomenal reads. (My recent read of Shadow & Bone confirms that!) It’s the same with Urban Fantasy. I came to the UF genre very late in the game, and every time there’s a new release in a series that is already like five books deep, I feel that I am missing out on that new release hubbub and excitement. I wish I could read faster! But pleasure reads are something that need to be worked in between ‘copies for reviews’ reads, so it’s a never ending cycle of trying to play catch up! So, to sum it up, I never feel pressured to read from other genres because of other bloggers. But damn if I don’t feel like I’m missing out!
How about you? Do you feel like you need to read more from other genres because some other bloggers do, or are you like me and feel like you might be missing out?
