Book Blogger Hop and Question of the Week

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly book party hosted by Its a great way to find new blogs and connect with other book bloggers and book lovers. It features a question every week to break the ice and get everyone talking.

This week's question is from Christina who blogs at The Paperback Princess. She asks:
"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"
My answer: Absolutely. Infact, I tend to go on a reading spree of all the books by the author, hunting them down rather obsessively. I think the last time this happened was when I stumbled upon Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. For the next month or so, hubby and I went through an armful of Murakami's books until we both started talking to sheep and saw fish dropping from the skies. Kidding aside, Its great to find an author whose writing connects with you and then discovering all his/her other work. Sometimes the subsequent works may prove disappointing but more often than not, its the start of a brand new love story between me and the author.


  1. Yes, I'll admit to "stalking" favorite that feature on Amazon that takes us to the Author's page, where all the other books congregate.


  2. Absolutely yes! I've been known to track down out of print novels cross country even.

    And the same thing totally happened to me with Murakami. I read After Dark and it was like an instant addiction.

  3. Did you spot mysterious cats everywhere you went too? I love Murakami. I tried to spread him out a bit because I wanted to make his books last. Sadly I finished the last one about 6 months ago. I am now waiting impatiently for iq84. I started with Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.

  4. It is obsessive sometimes especially if you find an author you just love.
