Have you ever noticed how there’s usually at least one book by a favorite author that you don’t like? It’s not the writing because, obviously, same author. I figure it’s because those books don’t have the right white space for you to move into, there’s something about them that makes you step back and refuse to engage so the book lands with a thud. I’ve been doing a lot of rereading of authors I really like and there’s always at least one that I get halfway through and think, “What the hell?” and start to skim and finally skip to the end. It doesn’t put me off the author, but it does make me more careful before I dive in.
Or maybe that’s just me.
What did you read this week?
