Trends

So this week we're talking about trends.
I think trends are ok. Trends happen (usually) because of one title that everyone loves. They want to read more like it. You know what I think about that? It's fantastic! Why? BECAUSE THEY WANT TO READ MORE. Hooray, mission accomplished! It makes my librarian heart all warm and fuzzy.

Vampires
Due to the popularity of Twilight, everyone was reading vampire fiction, or paranormal romance. 
I was never one for vampire stories, but it seemed like all of the good stories happened to have vampires in them, so I read them. Like any trend, it got a bit old after awhile. I'm glad it got people to read, though!

Dystopian
I loved this book! I read other dystopians because of the hype surrounding them, but nothing compares to this one. I'm just read for more contemporary stuff.

These are the two most recent big deal trends.
What do you think is next?
Steampunk?
Witches?
Mermaids?

  1. I don't read a lot of dytopians at all... I mostly like to read about apocalypse stuff as it's happening or immediately after, not so far down the road. I think it's because I don't want to have to read a bunch of world building and political stuff. Did you read any that were like completely trying way too hard to be Hunger Games?

    1. No, not that I can think of right now, but I'm tired of them in general. One of my favorites was Starters, and my least favorite was Taken.
