I stumbled across this 30 day book challenge by The Chronicles of Radiya and decided to give it a try. Hopefully it will lead to 30 consecutive days of blogging that liven up the blog a bit and give us a chance to get to know each other a little better.
Day 12: A Book You Used To Love But Don’t Anymore
Way back when, before I really got into YA novels and long before I started blogging, I went through a phase where I read all the mystery/true crime novels. Harlan Coben’s books were some of my favourites, and I especially enjoyed The Woods and the Myron Bolitar series. I still make it a habit to pick up his books as soon as they’re released, but I’ve recently found myself growing bored while reading them. There’s no element of surprise anymore, and I’m able to correctly identify the perpetrator and their motives almost immediately. I’m not sure if it’s because all of his plots follow a specific pattern or because I suddenly developed super sleuthing abilities overnight, but one thing’s for certain: I miss the way I felt when I first read these books.
… this post always makes me want to sing the Gotye song, Somebody That I Used To Know. “Now you’re just some old book that I used to love.”
Anyways, are there any books that you used to love but aren’t that fond of anymore?
