After the Honeymoon (BTT)

Today’s Booking Through Thursday:

Here’s something for Valentine’s Day.

Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?

I’m wracking my brains here, but no, I can’t think of one. All of my favorite authors have so far kept the faith with me. I look forward to checking out others’ answers to this question and seeing how often it’s happened for them.


I’ve posted several book reviews since my last post; all of them, for the first time in a while, are fiction—no cookbooks, no non-fiction. Weird, huh? Here they are:

I also have the awesomest husband: I got a box of books for Valentine’s Day! It includes some Val McDermid mysteries (I’ve wanted to read her stuff ever since watching the British TV version of ‘Wire in the Blood,’ based on her novels), one of which I’ve already started in on. I just couldn’t wait!

    You’ve been quite lucky with authors. Or maybe I just expect too much. 🙂

    Mervi: Actually, I think it’s that I’m a fickle reader. I flit from author to author rather than settling down to read long series.

    That’s fabulous, getting a box of books from your hubby! Happy Valentine’s Day, and Happy BTT. 🙂

  4. Becca says:

    You are a faithful reader-good for you!

    And what a great Valentine’s day gift – better than a box of chocolates in my opinion!
    I like Val McDermid’s work – hope you will as well.

    That’s great, Heather! And I’d be very very happy if I received a box of books for my Valentine’s Day too, but my husband got other plans. ;P

    A box of books for Valentine’s Day?? That man is a keeper!!

  7. What a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift! Definitely the perfect gift. 🙂

    Patricia Cornwell is an author I fell out of love with a few years ago. I really enjoyed her earlier books, but her writing slipped in the last three years. I read three books I wish I had not bothered with before finally giving up on her.

    Ah, the hubby knows his wife 🙂
