Like many of you, I’ve kind of burnt out on certain genres. For the longest time, I had difficulty reading any new paranormal romance. I could read old favorites, but new work was tough. On a whim the other day, I picked up a book called Mate Set by an author named, ‘Laurann Dohner‘. I’d never heard of her, even though she has quite a few books out. I’m about halfway (or a little more) through the book and really enjoying it. So much so, I went back and picked up several of her other books. (She appears to have various series happening and I wanted to give a few of them a try.) There’s something about her writing that reminds me of the ‘golden days’ at Ellora’s Cave. Several of the reviews liken her to Lora Leigh (back in the day). I can see what they mean, but her style is quite different. For some reason, that I’ve yet to pinpoint, her writing has struck a cord with me. (Much like D.B. Reynolds and her vampire books.) I’m just truly enjoying reading the story. I hope it’s the beginning of a trend. (Especially given how many of her books I’ve bought in the last two days. LOL!)
Is there anything you’ve given up reading? If so, why? Do you think you’ll ever return to the genre?
