his week was books you feel differently about after time has passed. I changed it to authors and knocked it down to 5. The story is the same with most of these fabulous ladies – I really loved their books when I started reading them. Then a some point I got sick of the books, of them, or their stuff just wasn’t what I wanted to read anymore. I still may go back to the at some point.

  1. Jessica Sorensen is one that I have yet to even start. I have at least half a dozen of her books on my shelf but just haven’t dove in yet. I never got into the Evanovich books but I’ve seen other say the same thing. They just grew tired of the series. It does seem to be never-ending. JLA is one of the few that I just don’t seem to tire of.

  2. I often get nostalgia for a certain author or book and a lot of times when I go back it just doesn’t work… or like you said a certain author just doesn’t work after a while. I understand when an author (or publisher) finds a formula that works, but you can only read so many variations of the same thing I think… 🙂

  3. Interesting take! I’ve definitely taken breaks from authors, especially those who write a lot of books that start to seem formulaic. I put these mystery authors on pause: Patricia Cornwell, Sue Grafton, Laura Lippman, Elizabeth George, Michael Connelly (I took him off pause because after a couple of phoning-it-in books, he wrote a great one and I loved the Bosch TV series)

  4. Cool twist on the list!! I totally have authors that I’ve either “out-grown” or for whatever reason don’t like as much anymore. I especially hate when an author changes genres to try to jump on the bandwagon… those authors I tend to get really mad at (in my head). You know, someone who writes Contemporary and then ALL OF A SUDDEN wants to write about Vampires as soon as Twilight comes out. Blah!! I haven’t read any of your authors, but I don’t read a lot of Adult or NA. I did try to read Obsidian by JLA, but I had to put it down bc it WAS Twilight.

  5. I have to agree with you on Jessica Sorensen and JLA. I liked their first few books but then everything turned out to be the exact copy of the previous books and I got bored.
    And ugh Jessica Sorensen’s books are so damn angsty and all have cliffhangers!

  6. ::Whispers:: Still salty with Charlaine over the last Sookie book. Just saying. And also, the four before that were kind of crap too. Note to everyone: Maybe don’t lock an author into a 13 book contract without knowing if the poor woman can even muster 13 books– because I have heard she didn’t want to do so many, so I can’t even blame HER, you know? Except for the ending, because she said that was how she wanted it to end all along. So yeah, that.

    I have only read one Jessica Sorensen book, and I liked it, but apparently not enough to read the next one? As for the rest of these, I never tried any of their books, nor have I had a pulling desire to do so, so I guess I’ll pass 😉

  7. Jessica Sorensen would be on my list! I was borderline obsessed with her books at one time. I’m not sure what changed my feelings, exactly, but I’ve not even been compelled to pick anything of hers up recently. An author who would absolutely be on my list is Jamie McGuire. For a number of reasons. But I’ll just leave it at her books now seem like the same story with different character names. And I guess I’d put Abbi Glines on the list for the same reason. I’ll still read Abbi’s books and I tend to enjoy them for what they are, but at one point I LOVED her writing. I guess my tastes have changed. 🙂
