Hi everyone. I have always been a big reader, though recently I seem to have come to a bit of a standstill. I do want to read, but I can't seem to concentrate long enough to actually finish a book. I stop and start, reading half a dozen chapters before getting bored or just giving up to do something else entirely. I'm not quite sure what the problem is... I just seem to have lost my mojo. So, I thought I would try and find some like-minded people who can either give me some tips on how to find my mojo again or give me some recommendations of books to read that will keep me gripped long enough to get me out of this funk I have found myself in. I have been reading mainly crime the last few months (think Patricia Cornwell, Tess Gerritsen) but generally enjoy most genres and usually read a good mix. The only genre I don't really like is sci-fi, although in all fairness I haven't really read any... wouldn't know where to start if I'm honest. I don't watch much television - tending to stick to box sets, watching an episode or two at a time - so reading is my main passion and tends to be my main pastime, picking up a book any spare time I have. So not being able to read (or not being able to concentrate should I say) is a pretty big thing to me. It feels horrible if I'm honest and I'm finding myself at a bit of a loose end more and more often which just make me feel even worse. Sorry for sounding a bit melodramatic but hopefully with this being a book related forum you will all understand how I'm feeling. Any tips, suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Fionen posted a topic in Book Search and Reading RecommendationsI'm in my 30's now and sick of reading Young Adult books but don't know where to start. I'm looking for books that: have a main character that is at least 25 years old are in the fantasy, sci-fi, or paranormal genre are NOT from the Romance genre and don't contain a bunch of descriptive sex don't have a lot of swearing (some swearing is okay) don't contain incestuous relationships (remind anybody of a certain popular series?)
