Book Blogger Hop: 4/22

Book Blogger Hop


 "If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"

If the book is a super delight, of course I hunt down the author in all other forms.  That isn't to say I read the other books with a blind eye.  I have started into some author's other books and realized the genius was a one time thing.  Some authors just seem to write in a style and along storylines that continue to please.  Although, admittedly, this is really rare to find especially with the current trend taking books a bit out of my comfort zone.  Plus, some authors seem to get a bit to high in the instep and their books start to show a love of something other than the story and its characters.

On the opposite side of the coin there have been a few authors I have given another chance after blacklisting them.  This isn't always a good experience but sometimes I have found some winners.

  1. Oh, I agree completely. There are times when I get lucky and the author's writing style still delights me; but there are also times when I'm kind of like - oh, it's not as good as the first one I read.

    Hopping through!

  2. It is a treat when you find an author who has a number of good books and hope they are all good.
