Welcome to the first discussion on The Mile Long Bookshelf! Please comment with your own opinions on this topic. I'd like to know what you think!
Currently, the most popular genre out there right now is Vampires. Yeah. Thanks a bunch, Twilight. It's not that I don't approve of this book topic - of course I do, and I understand that millions and trillions of people LOVE this new take on the vampire world - but it's dragging on a bit now.
What about the people who don't really like to read about vampires? There aren't many new books coming out that don't mention them. The Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer is a highly popular series of books and movies with teens and adults worldwide. Suddenly everyone became obsessed with vampires, angels and werewolves.
Me? I just don't get the obsession. I'm just waiting for the next genre to come along. But....what will it be? We've had real life. We've had comedy. We've had sadness. We've had sci-fi. We've had chick-lit. We've had horror.
Is this going to be the last genre? Like fashion. Fashion is just a big cycle - things that were popular back in the 80s are now coming back. Will the next genre be like that?
I'd like to know what you think. Do you like this genre? Opinions through comments, please!
