When I see ALTERNATE UNIVERSE in a book summary:
Is there a specific genre that you think you love but EVERY SINGLE book you read in said genre is a let down? I’ve had this with alternate universe books. I see the summary- think “hey this looks wonderful! I love alternate universes.” Then I read the book and I’m let down. It occurred to me…maybe I don’t like this genre even though I keep thinking I do?
Does anyone else do that?
I find that I don’t even enjoy the books that everyone else loves. What is wrong with me? I’ve tried numerous books and found only one or two that I’d actually like to keep in my collection. I think I get disappointed when the science is glossed over and the love interests get convoluted between worlds. I find that in most of these books I don’t have a deep connection with the characters and I really ship the romance. This saddens me.
Do I keep attempting them or do I throw in the towel and accept that this might not be my cup of tea?
I’m curious- do you have a genre you are completely pulled to but then don’t usually enjoy?
