Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.
If you read a book you end up hating, do you stay away from that author, or do you give them another chance?
Depends on why I hated the book. If the author seems to have a problematic view or beliefs that I didn't agree with there's a probability I won't give the author another chance. One author that is an example of that is Colleen Hoover. I do not like giving problematic authors my money, but if I am still interested in their books I may borrow them from the library. If I do not like a certain book of an author because of the story, there's a good chance I'd give another of their books a try. But if I don't like their writing style I probably won't because writing style is something that carries on throughout a persons writings. However, before making any decisions like that I also pay attention to what other reviewers are saying along with the book community in general. I never ban myself from authors completely because people change, but I also don't like giving my time or support to authors I do not think deserve it.
