Musing Mondays, August 12, 2013

Musing Mondays (http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/) asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
MusingMondays5• Describe one of your reading habits. • 
Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
 • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
 •Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
 • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Do you ever find that you change your mind about a book, a author or a series.  I found that I had a big change of heart about all of the above when I checked out a audio book by Robyn Carr.  I checked out The Wanderer, book one in her new Thunder Point series.   When I went to check out a new audio book I found Sunrise Point.  Because I enjoyed The Wanderer I checked it out.   I knew I thought it sounded familiar but it was not until I finished listening and went to Goodreads to write a review that I found I had won a copy of the book last year and had written a very negative review.  I did not like it in book form but really enjoyed it as a audio book.  I stated in that first review that I would not be reading any Robyn Carr books in the future.  That sure has changed as I have been checking out and reading  Robyn Carr  on a regular basis now.  I guess it just depends on how I feel at different times.

I wonder how many of you have had the same experience.

  1. Series and authors have gone sour on me, but I'm not sure the format ever mattered. But I can't listen to audio books at all so . . .

  2. I read the first Virgin River book and didn't enjoy it. Maybe I should give the audios a try.
