This post is not about how to literally fall in love with an author. Well, maybe it is. It is about how you sometimes fall for the work of a writer and feel compelled to keep reading their work. I have recently fallen in love with two authors and for one of them it involved perusing the aisles of my local library waiting for a book to call me.
I am a self-proclaimed bibliophile. I have always been in love with books. In fact, one of my mother’s favorite stories was telling how she learned that I could read when I was three and a half. The story involved a newspaper. I’m positive that I’ve shared many times over how much I love books and reading but it can never be said enough. Lately, I’ve been neglecting my summer reading list in favor of works by Michael Connelly’ s Harry Bosch novels and Bella Andre’s Sullivan Series. I know these are two totally different genres. I know that I should be more focused on my readings for school but I love to read what I love to read. Connelly is the one who called me from the shelves and after reading “Echo Park” I decided to read all of his Bosch books. I bought the first book in the Sullivan Series for a quarter (also from my local library) and immediately needed to read the entire series.
So, both of these two book series are now on my list to complete. I know that Andre just completed a big money deal with Harlequin and since I’ve been a longtime eBook lover of her work I’ll gladly support her books in print. I was familiar with Connelly’s work because of the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer” but Bosch is quite the character and I love a good one.
