I had a post ready for today, but I liked this suggestion from Chris even better, so … thanks, Chris!
Here’s something for Valentine’s Day.
Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?
You know...I don't think there is really! The thing with me is that if I enjoyed a few books by an author and then I start not really enjoying them, then I will still keep reading them because there is a chance that the next book will be the just as good as the ones that I did enjoy! I have a similar reason when I keep reading a book even if I am not really enjoying it - it could start to get really good in the next 10-15 pages!
The keep on reading an author regardless is especially true if I am part way through a series. Even if I am hating it, I find it really difficult to not read a series until the very end. The only time I can think of that this wasn't the case is if the series is one that I was borrowing books from the library to read, but then in order to keep reading I would start having to buy the books myself. One of the few things that is worse than giving up a series part way through is only owning bits and pieces of a series!
Loved the question this week!
