I Challenge You!
August 29, 2013
Have you ever looked up from the book you are reading and realized that (besides the names of the characters and the settings) it was the exact same as the book you had just read. And the one before that…and the one before that...and so on? That recently happened to me , so I decided to try something completely new.
I was stuck in the fantasy genre: vampires, mummies, druids, and mermaids. I read it all. So, I put the book I was reading down and challenged myself to read something completely different. I chose a mystery author, J.D. Robb, and picked the first book in her Death series, Naked in Death.
It was awesome! It had mystery, suspense, romance, and no zombies. It was completely different from the books that I had been stuck on for the past few months, and I realized what I was missing out on. So, I challenge anyone that reads this blog to do what I have so bravely done. Put down the book you are reading (because if you are anything like how I was, you know how it is going to end), pick up the first book you see, and try it.
