Thoughtful Thursday: The Best Change…

What is one of the best changes in the literary/book world that you have noticed, since you have begun reading? What makes this change so great for you?

I’ve been reading a really lonnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggg time now, so that would be a little hard to narrow down. I guess in the last few years and during the time I’ve been blogging it would be the addition of New Adult romances. I FLOVE them. It’s given a voice and bridged a gap between YA and Adult Contemporary romances. I’ve seen peeps complain that they’re all the same, and I could not disagree more strongly. I have read tons of unique and fresh storylines, and discovered so many amazing authors that I might have missed out on.

What about you? What is the best change you’ve noticed?

    I think that there are so many more books becoming movies or tv series. I love seeing my favorite book characters come to life. 🙂

    “Twilight” was the only YA book I’ve read as an adult so I don’t know about the others. But what I’ve noticed is that women’s erotica (fanfiction, Fifty Shades, etc) is becoming more mainstream and acceptable. Yes, they always had Harlequin romance novels that women would tuck under their pillows or read when alone whereas nowadays we read these things publicly and proudly. No stigma attached. And yes, being able to read on kindles and phones help, but look at Fifty Shades …………..$500 million worldwide! What does that say? 🙂

    Good thought for the day!

    I completely agree with you! I’d also add erotica entering the scene to my list. New Adult books like Colleen Hoover changed my reading life completely, but so did Fifty Shades, Gabriel’s Inferno, etc. Opened up a whole new world of reading. I know there were erotica novels out there for a long time, but these authors made it acceptable to read it and be proud to love the genre. It’s with these two genres that I got my love of reading back!

    I think Fifty shades, and books like it, have bridged a gap between the dirty little books, you didn’t want anyone to catch you reading, and the paperbacks you could get at the supermarket. The popularity of Fifty Shades, has made it acceptable to let your freak flag fly! Long live Queen E.L. Also, Kindles, and nooks are quite possibly the best invention in the history of the book nerd! I can’t even remember the torture of waiting for the paper back to come out, any more.
