Today’s topic is: Do You Give Authors a Second Chance If You Didn’t Like Something By Them?

We’ve all been there. We picked up a book from an author but didn’t enjoy that book. The same author then releases another book that looks somewhat appealing, but you’re not sure whether or not you want to pick it up.

So what do you do? Do you give that author a second chance?

I rarely ever dislike a book so this is a hard one for me to answer. There are many books that fall into the “it was just okay” category, but very few do I hate. Even some of my favorite authors have published books that turned out to be duds, but I still continue reading them.

However, there are authors that I will probably never give a second chance to. Lynette Eason is an example that I can think of. I’ve heard that she’s a really great author, but the book I read wasn’t impressive for me to want to explore more of her work.

Overall, I usually do end up giving the author a second  chance depending on the author.

What about you? Do you give authors a second chance if you didn’t like something by them?
