The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Have you ever switched reading genres? If so, why?

I’m not sure I understand this question as intended, but I’ve answered my interpretation of it below:
For those of you who follow my blog regularly (Hi, my blog friends!), you know that I love to switch it up. I started out, almost 4 years ago, thinking I would focus on mystery/thrillers and fantasy, but I’ve always read a mix of genres and so that quickly changed. Actually, there is no genre that I haven’t read at some point in my life.
If I read any one genre for a string of too many books, I find that I just have to have a change. Books start becoming too predictable, I lose the words to talk about them in a unique way, and I just grow discontent. I desire change – I thrive off of it. Luckily for my husband, that doesn’t extend to partners in life, but really for everything else. I move furniture around on a regular basis, I change my blog around every now and again, I like changing up what I eat often – you get the picture.
My favorite weeks are the ones where each book I’m reading is from a different genre. Those are the weeks when I’m a very content reader.
