Currently reading: City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare

City of Lost Souls  - Cassandra Clare

It was about time to say that I'm finally reading the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series! I'm not even halfway through yet, so I think this will be the last blogpost of the month (there will be of course the monthly wrap-ups).


Usually I don't do seperate reviews for each book in a series, but just a review about the entire series at once when I've finished the last book.


The thing is though: I've forgotten what happened in the previous books (mostly) and I think I've finally found the reason: I don't care that much about fantasy books anymore. I was never a fan of fantasy, but once in a while I loved reading about vampires, whitches and wherewolves, but I realised I don't love/like those books anymore.


I think that's because I've discovered so many great genres recently and I already loved contemporary books or just books about different cultures, societies and areas because I learned something from them and they made me feel! Because of that last thing I love dystopians as well and I'm excited to start reading more classic dystopians (as y'all know I have been reading George Orwell's books lately and I'm so excited to read more like those in the future!). The thing with fantasy books is is that there usually isn't a moral or anything that makes me feel, but just an adventures time and I'm just not in the mood for that anymore (I never was actually, but sometimes I did want to read something like that).


I'm glad I don't buy that many book at a time so I don't have huge tbr piles with unread books that I'm not interested anymore in reading them and that I can decide to leave a genre for what it is. I'm still going to finish this series though, but I'm glad I finally know my favorite genres.


This was more a topic that I wanted to talk about then a ''Currently reading-post'', but whatever haha.


What is your favorite genre? How did you find out what books you like and which ones you don't?
