MY THOUGHTS
As someone who started out reading only fantasy books as a teen I was hesitant to try other genres in between. When I experienced my first reading rut I decided to pick up an adult fiction novel to see if I would like a different genre. This book was Shadow of The Wind and it opened my eyes to a whole new world. With Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s writing I realized why I was in a rut, I just needed something different! Every genre I’ve tried has pulled me in and broadened my perspective on different authors. However, romance was always a genre I just couldn’t seem to dive into, until today. I picked up November 9 by Colleen Hoover because of everyone recommending ALL her books on Instagram.

I said I picked it up right, well, I just finished it. I didn’t move from my bed. It was the perfect Sunday morning, I sat there for 4h and devoured it. I leaped out of my comfort zone into a new genre and ended up loving it! I will definitely try another one of her books when I feel the need to binge read. Just so you know binge reading is totally different than binge watching a tv show. When binge reading you usually forget to eat. Then you experience all these emotions and you go through a roller coaster of feelings and you end up finishing the book with low blood pressure. I would definitely recommend it! Except have a snack handy, an apple or something you know!
