The question for this week is: Do you feel pressure to read more in genres that other bloggers read?
In the beginning, I really felt the pressure to read more YA. YA is what every book blogger seems to be reading. I know twitter chats that revolve around YA. I didn’t see much hype about other genres. I do read YA, but I am not that ‘into’ it at all. I never wanted to dedicate my book blog to a particular genre, hence I restrained myself from reading only YA. The pressure that I felt of being ‘left out’ never quite convinced me to do what I don’t feel like doing. I want to cater to ‘almost’ all readers. I know it is quite impossible because of stats and the various demands of publishers, but it is plausible and I will strive for it.
Have you ever felt left out in the blogging community?
