Big thanks to Ginger over @ GReads 🙂
Bookish Trends: What are some bookish trends you are noticing in the literature world today? Is there a particular trend you’d like to see more of?
I’m by my lonesome on the post today, Dixie went to the midnight Hunger Games showing (the trash!) and is traveling today (be safe!).
Let’s see . . . bookish trends . . . hmmmm. Well obviously we have our dystopians cranking out all over the place, which in my opinion is awesome since that is absolutely my favorite genre right now. Or we could go broader and say YA as a whole. Everyone has to admit they has gotten crazy good over the past few years (perfect examples: Hunger Games, Divergent, Article 5) and we all know it isn’t just teenagers reading them (I can use myself as the example here, hehe).
I would also say YA time travel books seem to have picked up. I don’t know if I’m just starting to get into those or if they really are picking up but I loved Hourglass by Myra McEntire and Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, both of which I reviewed for the blog. Overall I’m just really happy authors are branching out from the standard werewolf and vampire novels, though don’t stop those I still read them too!!!
What about you guys? Is there a genre I’m missing out on?? Tell me so I can add them to my TBR pile!!!
