February 22nd: Has a book by your favorite author ever disappointed you badly?

Yessss. It happens! Not every book can be a winner...especially a series. Some are bad. Some are good. Some authors bat 50/50 for me and that is okay. :) 

Also, sometimes it is okay to be disappointed in the direction of a series that your previously loved. The one that still hurts my heart is the Anita Blake series. I LOVED that series and that author. It was fantastic....but then the author started going in a direction I wasn't a fan of so I stopped reading. I still someday plan on reading the next one just to see, but I just haven't had the time. Someday!!  

Books or authors may disappoint you. It simply happens. And that is okay! 


Did a free winter edition for my Engagement photos! Here is a mini collage I made with some of our favorites!

LOVE the photos!!

I agree, I don't love books from favorite authors 100% of the time, but there have been a couple books that have really disappointed me - because of the direction the author chose for their story. It happens, I walked away. Oh well. Too many other books out there.

Sometimes in long running series that I'm reading there will be a book or two that is just not as good as the rest of the series. It happens.

Jen, thank you!!! Yeeeeeeep. Sometimes it is best to walk away. Like you said...there are a bunch of books out there.

Mary, yep! Sometimes it just happens.
