I need serious help, people! I’m in the worst reading slump I’ve ever been in.
Year-To-Date I’ve read a total of 20 books. For those of you who know me, you understand how horrible this is. For those of you who don’t, let me break it down for you.
In 2005, I read something like 370 books. In 2006, that number dropped, but was still fairly high…in the 300’s somewhere. That’s close to a book a day (if not more).
I’m not exactly sure what my problem is, but I think it’s a combination of things.
- I’m over paranormals. Seriously over them. I don’t want to read about witches, warlocks, magic, werewolves, vampires, angels, demons or any other paranormal element. I’m totally burnt out on them.
None of my favorite authors have released anything new, or are releasing anything new for awhile. Which means I can’t pick up an autobuy and fall into it.
I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for, but romantic suspense doesn’t seem to interest me and neither does historical romance.
I’ve re-read my favorite re-reads so often I’m sick of them.
I need help. Please! Can you recommend something that’s just straight-up romance? No suspense plot, no paranormal elements, no historical setting? Please?!? I’m desperate!
Maybe a category or anthology? Maybe an old Harlequin?
Save me! Please!!!!
