This is a pleading post I think. I've been going through my reading lists and haven't found anything to read. Yes. I know. What's wrong with me? I think the problem is that I own too many books. And I've read ALL of them.
I've read all series by every author I've tried. All of them.
I've read the "also buys" from most authors.
But for the life of me, I can't find something to read.
I want to read a contemporary or western that may or may not have erotic in it. I'm okay if it doesn't have that. I want a series that has depth and different plot lines. I want a series in which I'm not yelling at the characters to freaking talk to each other. I want a series in which exes are off the the side and not in EVERY plot.
I want to read a paranormal work too. One where the man isn't so alpha that I want to throw something at the guy. Or where the heroine isn't a doormat and isn't a bitch.
Apparently I'm picky.
As a reader, I'm picky as hell. And I'm okay with that. I read so much and spend so much money on books, that I deserve to find something I'll like.
That's how I feel as an author too. You readers spend so much time and money on us that I don't want to disappoint you. But on the other hand, I want to tell the story in my head and that may be different than what you want. Its all a big jumble of hard word and luck sometimes.
I know not everyone will like what I write. But I also know some will love it. I'm just going to hug the latter a bit closer if that's okay with you.
But back to reading. I need help. I have no idea what to read. I'm writing about 8-10 hours a day at this point and reading lets my brain rest, so I need a good book.
Help. I'm picky and can't find anything to read. And yes, I know there are over a million books out there I just need to be led to one. Because as I writer, I know reader recommendation is the best promo tool out there. As a reader, I survive on it.
