Downton Abbey is huge all around the world and so I think that this may increase the number of historical novels out there. I’ve already seen quite a few pop up. Personally, I think that this is a good thing as I’m a massive historical fiction geek!
DISCUSSION: Book TrendsPosted on 23 January, 2013
With the rise of The Hunger Games and Twilight we have all had our taste of Vampire and Dystopian novels. But what are my book trend predictions for the upcoming year?
Since the release of The Hunger Games early in 2012 I have noticed a boom in Dystopian novels. I’ve loved a lot of these (Breathe, Divergent etc.) but is there a limit? It seems that a lot of these books are covering the same topics and same plot lines now and so I’m looking forward to reading something else.
There are some major book adaptions hitting the big screen this year and I am really looking forward to walking in to my English class and seeing people reading these.
Most of these movies are fantasy based and I am going to be pleased to see something other than the dark Vampire covers in bookshops. With Beautiful Creatures being released next month I think that we will be seeing a lot more paranormal type books. We also have The Host movie which will also see a rise.
What do you think? Are there any book trends that you would like to see?
