Hello friends! Okay, so here is the problem with life right now, TV sucks! I could say a lot about The Walking Dead…but let’s not touch that sore spot right now.
Since I have not been too happy with my shows this week…or last week, I thought I would discuss this thing that has been on my mind.
Will you read a book by an author you don’t like? I’m not talking about you don’t like the writing, but the author as a person.
I just recently fell in love with a series and I did what I always do, I followed the author on Twitter. I’m not going to out the author or the series, but I will say it is a recent favorite among a lot of people at the moment.
I still love the series and I will continue on with the series, but I have unfollowed the author because I just didn’t like her anymore. There was a lot of talk about politics and honestly, not something I care to hear. Then one day she had said something that just enraged me and…yeah, that was the day I stopped following her.
After that I also heard a story about how she became an author and it made me like her even less. I almost don’t want to even buy her next book, but I am already invested in the story and will more than likely continue buying her books until this series is over. Once the series is over I will refuse to buy anything else by her.
So, do you continue to read books by authors you don’t like on a personal level? Not because their writing sucks or their stories are lacking, but simply because as a person they suck?
