I started my 10th book of the year last night and it’s by another new to me author. It’s the 4th one so far this year. There’s no way I can stay on that kind of pace of reading new authors. Can I?
I get in my head a bit because when I start a new book I’m excited, no matter what. But when it’s written by someone I’m not familiar with there’s an extra level of intrigue. But there’s also the thought of “what if I don’t like something everyone else seems to love”. I know it’s silly, but I’m not the only one thinking it. I mean, there are plenty of titles coming to mind as I write this I simply did not enjoy.
How often do you start reading a new author for the first time?

Whew. Almost fell off the wagon and gave up on my reading for the year. Kidding. Next up is a throwback! Recently decided to look up detectives I've never read before and came up with Mr. Phillip Marlowe. This will be my first experience reading Raymond Chandler. Let's hope it doesn't go the same as my experience with Hemingway. 🙃 📚 📚 📚 #books #booksofinstagram #bookishlife #raymondchandler #detective #phillipmarlowe #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #reader #reading #igreads
