A weird coincidence resulted in three dystopian future books hitting my reading list in the last month. First there was Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel that was a Blevins Book Club selection. Then there was The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch then Ready Player One by Ernest Kline.
Normally I like the dystopian future genre but by the time I got to the end of Ready Player One, I was ready to renounce any other titles that come my way. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m feeling like a dystopian future is already on our doorsteps or if it was just too many of these books in a row. Whatever the reason, I’m looking forward to a Jane Austen title I just picked up from the library!
Do you have a favorite genre? Do you ever get tired of it?
