With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings Of A Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question is:  If you read a book you ended up hating, would you stay away from future books by that author, or would you give them a second chance?   My Answer That is a tough question to answer. Some people, I’m sure, would say no they wouldn’t automatically. Me? Well, there are a few that I’ve read and just absolutely would not give them another try because of not only myself not liking the book, but others as well. However, there are books that I read and love by an author, then read one book and sit there like “whoa”, what just happened, I didn’t like it, etc. But,… Read more »
