I’ve just noticed this weird habit/problem of mine just last week and I have to say, it’s weird.
I don’t know why, but for some weird reason, I can rarely read books written by the same author back to back, even if I really enjoyed the book I just read.
My latest example: Morgan Matson. I’ve read and absolutely loved Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone as you can tell from my review and am definitely planning to read all her other books like Second Chance Summer and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, books I already have on my shelves. However, when I decided that my next read should be another Morgan Matson book, something in my mind urged me that no, don’t read it yet! Choose another book! Don’t read Morgan Matson’s other books yet!
I also have a hard time binge reading a series back to back. The last time I did that was…never. It doesn’t matter if the last book ended in a cliffhanger, I’ll read another book anyway by a different author anyway. I just don’t know why – maybe I want to read another book written by another author automatically?
Do you also have this weird habit like I do when you read books back to back? Please tell me I’m not alone in this.
