In A Mood

When I am writing, I have to be in the mood for a certain genre to hold my interest, and the same is true of reading. When I pick a book up off the shelf and delve into it, it is entirely dependent on my “craving” what genre of book it will be.

To me this phenomenon is exactly like being hungry for a certain cuisine. When you want Chinese food, pizza will not be satisfying. When you are craving the meaty crunch of a taco, fettuccini alfredo just won’t do. When I want a hot steamy eroto-romance with werewolves and BDSM overtones a YA fantasy novel with unicorns isn’t going to seem like much of a read.

I’ve fallen into a new mood recently where NONE of the books I’ve tried reading suit my tastes. Pure fantasy? Too slow and PG. Romance? Too much cheese. Sci-fi? Too much deep thinking to fill in the galactic sized plot holes.

Those are my three favorite genres, so now I’m in a pickle. What the hell do I want to read!!!???

What are you reading? Can I borrow your book?
