How my Reading Tastes have changed over the years!

I’ve been meaning to share this with you for the longest time, but always shied at the thought of how long it would take me to create the infographic that I’d love, and which would translate well my reading journey. 

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is all about Changes in our reading life, from genres to habits, this meme was perfect for me to finally sit down and prepare the one blog post that has been on my To-Do list forever.

I always loved reading. In fact, when I was very little and couldn’t read on my own I played with my books instead of toys (at least that’s what my parents and grandma always told me). However, I do remember that whenever my mom would go to the shops she’d ask me if there was something I wanted, and I always asked her to bring me a book. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is what my reading journey looks like so far! I hope you’ll enjoy this post, and please share your experiences and favorite genres / books in the comments below!

    1. Thank you so much, hun ❤ Feel free to "steal" it any time, would love to see your take on it. I've been toying with the idea of making an infographic for my reading journey for many months now (probably since February or March of this year.. lol) but it always seemed so daunting and didn't know how to start. I used one of Canva infographic layouts for this post and it actually turned out pretty well 🙂

  1. I love the way you did this post! It’s so cool to see the different stages your reading has gone through. I’m glad to hear you enjoy a lot of different genres now. I’ve definitely embraced a bunch of different genres of books over the years and I feel as though it has made reading overall a lot more exciting, getting much more variation and appreciating all the books for the different types of enjoyment they bring 🙂

    1. Thank you!! ❤ I was so excited to do this post, so I'm so glad and grateful that it got very positive feedback! That's so true. There are so many different genres and books out there, it would be very restricting to only read one genre. And to be honest, I get tired of reading the same genre very quickly, and like to mix my reads a bit.

  2. Love how you did this Top Ten! I’m always jealous of readers who were able to read Harry Potter as children. I read it as an adult, which was fine, but I know I would have been completely enthralled as a child! Great post!

  3. I love the graphic, it’s so cool!! 😀
    When I was in primary school, my whole class had a specific time every two weeks when we could go to the library there and take a book home. I don’t remember much of what I chose, just a fairytales book I’d choose multiple times. Besides that, I was completely obsessed with two series, one about magic cats and the other about fairies. Between 5th and 8th grade was a weird time. In 5th grade I was obsessed with “The Twins at St. Clare’s” by Enid Blyton and I read those books until 7th grade. Then, I found out lots of things at the same time: Twilight (a classmate got me into it and I couldn’t get enough of it lol); historical fiction (like The Book Thief); non-fiction (especially about women living in third world countries); and romance (because my aunt was the only other reader in my family and she loved Nicholas Sparks). In 9th grade, I finally discovered bookstagram and booktube, and therefore, YA. I read The Mortal Instruments and from then on, I didn’t want anything else. Nowadays, I do still like romance, non-fiction and historical fiction, but my favourite genres are Fantasy and Contemporary, especially YA. ^^

    1. Aw, I love that! Your reading journey was also “all over the place”, but in a good way. I especially love the Nicholas Sparks influence from your aunt 😀 I read tons of “funny” detective novels because both my mom and grandma were obsessed with them 😀

      1. Yeah I think that was really great because I got to read different things and form an opinion on what I prefered! 😀 I wish more people in my family were avid readers …

    1. Thank you so much! 🙂 I’ve been toying with this idea for years, I always knew I wanted to make some sort of visual board for my reading but never knew where to start, so I was very happy when this finally got done. Lol
