It's Friday, it's time to hop !!

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author? Absolutely !!! The first author that comes to mind is Barbara Kingsolver. I first heard of her on Oprah, and yes I admit Lady O has been a big influence on my reading. I read Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible because I heard about it on the show. I loved that book so much, I picked up other books by her (Prodigal Summer, The Bean Trees, Pigs in Heaven and Animal Dreams).

Then we have Jodi Picoult. My Sister's Keeper is the first book I ever read by her. I read a review in the newspaper, and I've been hooked since (Sing You Home, House Rules, Nineteen Minutes, Perfect Match, Plain Truth, Salem Falls, The Tenth Circle, and Mercy). Although, I have yet to read Sing You Home, The Tenth Circle or House Rules. I know I will get to them. Some people think her writing is too schmaltzy and in some cases controversial, but I don't care. I'm a fan all the way!! If you've held my attention with one book, I'm confident you can do it again with the next book.

Here are some blogs I came across:

  2. New follower. I'm the same I immediately search out everything else the author has written!

  3. I ALWAYS stalk down authors after reading books that I love. Especially if I'm able to lose myself in their writing because I know I'll be able to do the same in the rest of their books!

    Here's my Hop!

  4. I think most of us think alike. We like an author's first book and then we are hooked.

  5. One book is enough to hook you. Or in some cases, I might give an author a second try. With Kristin Hannah, I didn't like True Colors but I did want to read her latest Night Road.

  7. I like your rationalization...I agree...if you like one book, you certainly should like others.
