|She could totally be a fantasy character|
But whenever I try to read one, I just...can't. There are usually too many things for me to think about, too many names like Aaaeeddywna that I can't pronounce and then get confused because there's also Eeeadwyna.And I laughed heartily because I have the same problem. I've read four different fantasy books this year (Graceling, Fire, Beyonders, Incarceron; you can see my other reads here) and I didn't like any of them. I couldn't even finish Beyonders.
Sure, I have my reasons. Kristin Cashore's books had more soap operay sexual content than I cared for. Brandon Mull is a wordy, wordy writer. Catherine Fisher's book was just confusing, start to finish. But I wonder if I would have been more forgiving if the books weren't fantasy. So when I label a fantasy book as "Skip This" know that I've yet to find an old school fantasy that I liked.
Are there any genres that just don't do it for you?
