Book Blogger Hop – Aug. 10

Book Blogger Hop

I can’t breathe through my nose. Help me. My head is going to pop! I hate being sick. I think I’m loopy from too much cold medicine. Perfect time for the Book Blogger Hop!

Our question this week is: Who is your go-to author when you are in a reading rut?

Gee, I don’t think I have one. Being in a rut usually means I’ll try something off the wall to break out of it. I’d be more likely to try someone I’ve never heard of than an author I’ve already read. I have favorite authors I go back to because I really enjoy them but that usually means I’ve read all their books and love them enough to reread them. I’d go for Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, or Sarah Addison Allen. (I still have to read The Peach Keeper.) If I’m in a rut it’s time for a good old ramble through the library and to pick something different off the shelves. I’d look for an awesome cover or some odd title and hope it paid off.

  1. I have a few favorite authors I go to when I’m in a rut to get jump-started again.

  2. Reading debuts or works from an author I don’t know can make a rut worse for me so I go to Andrea Kane or Kristin Hannah, they have books I still haven’t got to.

  3. Amanda's Writings

    Ohh, Neil Gaiman is a good choice 🙂

    My Post.

  4. Interesting that you’d choose a new-to-you author instead of a well-loved favorite. That would be too risky for me! Love Neil Gaiman, by the way.

    Happy Hopping!
