Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance?
My reading taste has pretty much stayed the same for as long as I can remember. I like sci-fi (Neil Gaiman sci-fi, not Ben Bova sci-fi) and general fiction. Although, the general fiction I love the most has a fantasy twist to it, like Time Traveler’s Wife.
I guess I always considered my reading tastes to be more mature than what I should have been reading. I read Interview With the Vampire at 10 years old, followed by a slew of Stephen King books. I read Salmon Rushdie’s very controversial Santanic Verses when I was 14th, also followed shortly by the true crime novel on the Manson Family murders and the evolution of the Punk scene via Vivene Westwood and the Sex Pistols. I guess if any specific change, my reading taste has gotten a lot less morbid over the years.
In the end, if something is well-written then I’ll read it, regardless of the content matter.
What about you guys?
