I haven’t been posting much this year. Not only has life been hectic, but reading-wise, it has been a disappointment. Book after book, I found uninspired stories and characters. Most have been such a letdown that it made me stay away from blogging altogether. Nothing has truly made me want to write a review.
But I do not want to quit blogging. I’m sure there are still books out there I’ll want to talk about. A couple I even reviewed, but never published the posts; others I haven’t found yet. The thing about reading uninspiring stories is that it makes for uninspired blogging. There’s nothing to write passionately about.
I’ve talked about ‘meh’ books before. It’s tough talking about reads you don’t really know how you feel about or that did nothing for you. Uninspired books are those that do not surprise you, that follow the same pattern and tropes every other writer is using, that don’t go deeper into their plots and stay with shallow characters.
Maybe I pick the wrong books or maybe I read too much of the same genre. I’m not sure. But I still love when I find a book that captivates me and offers me something unique. I just wanted to write this post to let you know that although I might not be around that much, you can still expect to see the occasional post from me and that I’m constantly on the lookout for those unique reads.
