Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday -My Playlist

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is:

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

- My first instinct is to say yes, but there really is no definite answer to this one. Silly as this may sound, books have their own personality, and to say that the author is solely responsible for that personality is saying that all of your characteristics come from your parents. Sometimes what I loved about a book isn't necessarily present in other books by that same author, just like you don't share all of your characteristics with your siblings. Of course, that doesn't stop me from reading other works by that author; I just try not to come in expecting to read "Book-I-Loved.2"

How about you? 

Another weekly meme I participate in is Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee. This week's questions is not book related, but still fun!

Love and (a book) light,



  1. I wouldn't expect it to be the same either but I still want to read them :)

  2. Dorothy,
    I love your answer! It is so true.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Came over via the Hop, I like your response, it's true!

  4. Hi! New follower here. I agree with your response. Sometimes, it can be a real letdown if your expectations are too high if you loved one book by a particular author. I usually try all the same, though!

  5. I usually let my expectations get too high (prime example - Emily Griffin). Yours is a smart answer.

    PS - AFF is my redhead soulmate. She and I will be friends one day, mark my words. ;)

  6. Good Blog Hop answer.

  9. Stopping by from the book blogger's hop. I usually do seek out more books by an author whose book I loved. I like to try to read several by that author, and see how they fit together.

  10. I love your 'About Me', I'm a new follower.

  11. Hi, hopping in. Sometimes it can be hit or miss if I like other books by the same author, but it's fun to try!

  12. I liked your response. I think mood has something to do with it too. When you go to read the authors other books you might be in a different place from what you were when you read the first one.

  13. Hey Dorothy!! Niiiiice playlist! New follower here :)
