Lately, I’ve been revisiting some of my old favorites – you’ve probably seen the posts of the ones I’ve covered. I’ve also been trying some older series that just never “clicked” for me, for whatever reason. And sometimes the results have been a bit surprising to me.
I don’t know if it’s just that I didn’t give some older series a fair chance, but nowadays, I often find that giving something another chance that I passed on years ago will often turn out to be a surprise new favorite for me! At the same time, some of the older series that I used to really love, I’ve found myself gradually falling off of… to the point where I’m not sure if I could really recommend them to a new reader!
This isn’t usually a drastic change >>> series will either change from a slight recommendation to a “you should probably pass” sort of attitude, but more drastic swings are possible. I’m not sure if this is a change in my own personal taste, or if I’ve just seen enough of certain themes and feel like I need to “move on” from the series.
So has anyone else found that their personal taste has changed when you go back and re-evaluate a series, either for good or for ill? Please keep examples, particularly of series that you no longer can fully support, general – I don’t want this to degrade into a flame war of different series that others might still really enjoy!
