Booking Through Thursday: Evolution

Here is my late entry for August 12th's Booking Through Thursday question: Have your reading choices changed over the years? Or pretty much stayed the same? (And yes, from childhood to adulthood we usually read different things, but some people stick to basically the same kind of book their entire lives, so…)

My answer: I've always like to read a variety of books so I'm not sure how to answer this question. Ever since I was a teenager I've liked reading series (Anne of Green Gables, Chronicles of Narnia) or if I like a book, I will try to read EVERYTHING by that author-and I still do!! I also have often read in phases, like when I was 9 to probably 14 I read R.L. Stine, and Christopher Pike, then onto Stephen King When I was around 12 or 13 I was really into science fiction and fantasy and read pretty much everything by Isaac Asimov. Nowadays, I still like series or reading my way through an author's works. Lately I find myself in Historical Fiction phases, or trying to read everything by say, Barbara Kingsolver, or more chick-lit Maeve Binchy!! I still like a little sci-fi now and again (thank you Guy Gavriel Kay!), or some mystery-thrillers like The DaVinci Code.

How about you?
