Follow Friday Feature

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by  Parajunkee and Allison Can Read, that allows you to meet new bloggers and make new followers.

Q. What would you prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?

A. I have approximately 40 authors that I follow on a regular basis and last year I read nearly 500 books some were god awful, some were amazingly good. The authors I follow normally come out with 1-2 books a year depending on their contractual obligations. My tastes are eclectic ranging from Urban Fantasy, to Mystery, to Thriller, to Historical Romances. If I come across a so called mediocre book, I won't hesitate to drop the series and move onto something alot better.

  3. I do wonder about getting sick of my favourite book, but there are always new angles and nuances to discover. Besides, I just can't bring myself to waste time with mediocre reads.

    Here's my FF

  5. New follower! Wow! 500 books last year? I wish I could get through that many in a year! I am not a re-reader so this question was tough. Here is my FF if you'd like to follow back:
