Have you noticed that in every series you fall in love with, there is one book that's just not as good as the others even though you totally expected it to be. If the read is bad enough, this one book can turn you off to the rest of the series, but if you're like me you'll give the author another chance, all because the seventy-two (I'm exaggerating a little) previous books were rock your world awesome.
I'll admit that there are some authors who keep delivering on every book they write, and as a realist (my mom used to call it pessimism) I'm kind of waiting for the let down book. Hopefully it will never come.
If you have never experienced this phenomenon then yay! Keep on reading with only high expectations of the author delivering.
If you have experienced this phenomenon, you have my condolences because it's very disappointing. What did you do? Keep on with the series or chuck it?
