Theme Reading

Sometimes I look at my "to-read" shelves and think--"next month I will read all my contemporary romances".

I never stick with it.

Do any of you ever Theme Read? What are your favorite themes?

  1. I've been doing that with urban fantasy/paranormal recently, but only because I read NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer and it made me realize how much I love the genre. I don't usually make a point to read all of one thing or the other, but it happens that way sometimes.

  2. Whenever I actually make a plan to theme read, I don't stick with it as well, but sometimes I just find myself doing it without planning!

    My problem lately is starting too many books at once!

  3. I don't know if I'm a themed reader persay but I definitely have a holiday theme going on. Or a season theme I would say. We're walking into spring and that being said I love light and fluffy reads so I picked up a novel titled Semi-Sweet by Ruision Meaney and it's delicious!!! About cupcakes and romance!

  4. I need a good spring book right now in this never-ending winter! I find that in the winter I look for "summer" books and in summer I read "winter" books. Fooling the mind, I guess!

  5. Just the other day I thought I should take all the book off my to-read shelf that other people have sent me and read all those so i can effortlessly cross them off my mental reading list. I haven't done it yet though. Keep trying is my motto!!!

  6. February was totally "ARC" month--not that I meant to, but I got a few from new publishers so I wanted to prove myself by reading them before publication date!

    Also, Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab is tricky--the ebooks are only available until release date so I really feel pressure to get those done!

  7. Sometimes. My son is, thanks to you, on a zombie kick, lol. Rot & Ruin, The Forest of Hands and Teeth and waiting anxiously for Dust & Decay. I can't tell you how much this kid has analyzed the logic in the way dystopian/post-apocolyptic societies work. How many sentences lately have started with "If I were there . . . " and Popular Science had a little article on how to start a zombie apocalypse and it's a Walking Dead marathon Friday. So yeah, he's been theme reading and more! I've been theme reading, sort of. I recently discovered Kristin Hannah and I've been on a marathon reading spree of her books! My library is getting in all the Dead Is books so I imagine in a few weeks I'll be one Dead Is book after another!
