Pros & Cons When Reading in Your Genre

Most writers I know love to read, and for those who don’t… What are you doing? How do you expect other people to read your book one day when you won’t read theirs? It’s all fun and games reading until you get to your story and you’re writing, but something about it seems… familiar! You’re unconsciously copying another story but in your own version. Oops! Backspace… backspace. Hopefully, with these pros and cons of reading books in your genre, you can be cautious while reading and writing. Most of the points I’ve gathered along with my reading and writing journey. Maybe you’ll pick on one or two… There are quite a few pros and cons but I’ve narrowed it down to the most important.

Book Review: Where We Begin by Christie Nieman. A thought-provoking read.

Where to begin (haha, see what I did there?) with a book that held such a vague blurb—it ended up making me shed a tear at the end.

Book Review: Humorously Done, You Were Made For Me by Jenna Guillaume

This was a fun YA Contemporary to ease the tension after reading such complex books. I took it more leisurely than an actual book review and finished it in a matter of days. The cover is just so playful; I adore illustrations! The day I created a boy started out like any other. Katie didn't mean to create a boy. A boy like a long-lost Hemsworth brother: six-foot tall with floppy hair and eyes like the sky on a clear summer's day; whose lips taste like cookie-dough and whose skin smells like springtime.
