Absolutely! Epic Fantasy books take me the longest to read. First off, they tend to generally have a lot more pages. I’m currently reading A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. I started it on March 29th and I’m not even close to being half way done yet. I’m really loving this series and the fact that the second season of the TV show just started definitely helps but the writing is very descriptive and the book is 761 pages long. Yikes! That’s equal to what, about 2.5 regular books? Plus, I can’t help but switch between books to help break things up. I have review deadlines after all!
The second genre that takes me the longest to read has to be Paranormal Romance. However, it really depends on the book and the author’s style. If the book is strictly about a certain preternatural couple’s undying love for each other I end up struggling a bit. I need bouts of action in a story to help keep me interested; when the plot’s all ooey-gooey I get bored. Where’s the drama? Where’s the intrigue? I can only take so many “I love you’s” before I start gagging.
What about you?
