Have you ever had one of those times in your life when taking doesn’t fit into your schedule? I think we’ve all been there.
We get into the business of life and our ‘to read’ pile gets bigger and dustier. We look sadly at that pile and wish we could return to its fantastical depths. Then we finally start to resent that pile because it reminds us of the fun we could have if we only had some spare time. Ok, maybe that last one is just me.
I found that when I’m in one of these scheduling shifts my tastes in books change. I don’t want to read the super detailed fantasy novel or the thought provoking science fiction. l just want to read something entertaining and not too immersive. That being said, my aversion to romance increases exponentially. Have you ever tried to find a light sci fi/ fantasy book with zero romance? It’s practically impossible. Maybe that’s what makes me resent my pile. They’re the perfect books if the timing wasn’t so bad.
What about you? Do you wistfully gaze at your book pile? Do your tastes change? Can you recommend a light sci fi/fantasy book with zero romance?
