An update on my reading challenges

The Steampunk challenge:
I have tried to read Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, but I haven't finished it.  I started Viridis, but I haven't finished that one either.
The Urban Fantasy challenge: 
I have read  Shaded Vision by Yasmine Galenorn,  Summer Storm by Lizette Gifford and  Raven Calls by C.E Murphy.  I will probably post reviews of them, sometime this year.

Here is the thing: I have gradually come to the insight that I am burned out on Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.   I feel meh about books, even by authors I like. For example:  I should be excited that the next Patricia Briggs novel is out soon, instead I'm not sure I'll buy it.   I have no idea  if I'll buy it. All right. I probably will, since it is Patricia Briggs after all.  

So what am I doing to recover?  I am reading other genres. I have a bunch of historical fiction that is unread, and also some Romantic Suspense.  But most of all, I try to shake off the feeling that I have to review every book.  That I can read a book just for fun.

But there is one review coming next week:  Hunter's Prey by Moira Rogers.  It will be the last one with a paranormal element for awhile. Unless I stumble upon a really good book that I want to spread the word about.
