BOOK BLOGGER HOP 4/22-4/25: Stalking my favorite authors

Book Blogger Hop

It's Friday! Time for the book blogger hop, hosted by Crazy for Books. Come join the fun! Meet other book bloggers and add some books to your TBR pile.

This week's question comes from Christina from The Paperback Princesses:
"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"

Absolutely! I love being surprised by authors I've never read before, but there is also something reassuring about picking up a book by someone whose style of writing  has pleased me in the past. There are a good many writers whose works I "collect." Cecelia Holland comes to mind. I fell in love with Great Maria and now have a shelf full of Holland's books.

Another author I managed to stalk despite her switch in genre and name was Judy Blundell. Here is my review of Strings Attached.

And anyone following this blog might have noticed how quickly I ran out and read A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly after reviewing Revolution.

That's just a couple examples of single titles. It's even easier for me to get addicted to series.

How about you? Are you always on the prowl for new writers or do you hang out for awhile with your favorites?


  1. I've heard so many good things about Jennifer Donnelly. I need to check her out some time.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  2. Hi Susan, thanks for hopping by.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Thanks for coming by! Yup, series are my love as well....

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog, am now following. Am looking forward to reading your reviews.

  5. I have been noticing lots of mentions of Jennifer Donnelly's work, and my plan is to read something soon!


  6. There is definitely something comforting about reading a book by an author you love. I love picking up a book and straight away recognising the writing style.

  7. I've done that a few times. Years ago, when The DaVinci Code came out, I sought out the other books by Dan Brown. The first time I read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, I went on to Ebay and bought all of the Betty Smith books. Wally Lamb is also another favorite author, and I've read all of his books, too.
