Do you ever find unintentional reoccurring themes in the books you are reading? I don’t mean that you are on a paranormal kick or a MC kick but how you keep reading seemingly random books and they end up having some of the same themes.
I’ve read so many books this year that are set in New Orleans without even realizing it before I started reading them. ⚜️ Now I want to go visit New Orleans. 😆
Several of the books I’ve read are either about whiskey distilleries or the characters drink whiskey. 🥃
I have been collecting cowboy books to read eventually but even without those, I feel like I’ve read so many that are set on a ranch, the character was born on a ranch, or the hero/heroine returns home to the ranch. 🐎
Also, can we talk about the number of books where the hero and heroine meet in a cafe or fall in love over pastries? 🍩🍰
And while a hero’s name isn’t a theme, I’ve read something like 3 books this year with the name Kai for the hero. If I wasn’t done having babies, I’d think it was a sign to name my next born child Kai. 😜 The name has definitely grown on me and I loved the books where the hero was named Kai.
In fact, despite all the reoccurring patterns, I have really enjoyed each of the books I’ve read that have fallen in one of these categories. These books have made me want to travel and explore new places, try new food/drinks, and get out of my comfort zone. It’s amazing what reading a book for fun can do for our self-discovery.
It’s so wild to me how we can talk about tropes or sub-genres and we can purposely seek out those types of books but sometimes we gravitate to certain books without even trying.
💬 Have you noticed a reoccurring pattern in any of the books you’ve read this year? I want to hear about them and what books they were in if you can remember.
