As of late, I’ve been only interested in non-fiction. If you follow the blog, that probably isn’t a surprise to you (The Feminist Porn Book, Secret Sex Lives, Perv, etc.). I find it interesting that I’m in a non-fiction phase because I’ve never had it before. I hated reading non-fiction (even though I enjoyed learning). My heart was set only on fiction and the more fantasy-like the better.
Somehow this flipped a few months ago and now I can’t imagine picking up a fiction book (at least for a little while longer). I think it has to do with not being at university. I technically started again this week, so maybe my non-fiction interests will wither, but I had been university-free for nearly four months. I think that when I am not learning, I want to learn through my books. And when I am busy with university or school, I want to run away to fiction (instead of learning in my leisure time).
I’m sure I’m not the only one with this relationship with my fiction/non-fiction genres. Are you similar? Do you read ONLY fiction or non-fiction or do you alternate? Let us know in the comments below! 🙂
