The A to Z Challenge is an annual blogging challenge. It isn’t restricted to book blogs – all kinds of blogs can participate. It takes place every year in April and during that month you have to write a post on the designated days (all except Sundays). These posts must have some correlation to the letter of the day. So, there will be a total of 26 posts starting from the letter A and ending with Z. Here is a list of all my posts.
Today is just going to be a short post about reading variety. I think we can all agree that reading different kinds of books from various genres cannot be bad. I think it’s actually pretty good, because first of all you can test what kind of genres you like and second of all you might be surprised at what you find!
Most of the times I’ve given books from genres that I don’t usually read a try, I was pleasantly surprised. The most recent example for that is the kite runner by Khaled Hosseini. I loved that book and would probably never have picked it up if my mom hadn’t bought it for me as a present. It still sat on my shelf for about two years before I actually read it!
Unfortunately, though, I have to say that I don’t read that many books from different genres other than young adult. Maybe the reason for that is that I read and watch so many people saying great things about YA books, which has led to me having a ya-to-read list that consists of hundreds of books. I don’t really hear so many things about books from other genres. But still, I feel like I should expand my reading variety
a bit a lot actually…
