Burnout from reading favorite Authors?


Dear Readers,

Do you ever suffer from burnout by reading your favorite Authors back to back?

I remember, many years ago all I read for the very longest time was Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Danielle Steel.

I was the first in line to buy and read their books.

It wasn’t that the writing was bad or found one of their books less enjoyable, (although I do have my favorites and least favorites.)

I simply had enough.

I hate when this happens.

But of course, I think our taste changes as we grow older?

Do you agree or disagree?

What do you do when you suffer from this Burnout?

Do you wait awhile and go back to the Author, do you leave with intentions of picking up their books again in the future, or do you never return to them?

Just curious.

Happy reading!

Oh, and also we discover new Authors we love! 🙂

    Oh I think I do! I used to read a TON of Nora Roberts. Now, maybe once a year. I think I got so used to her style, each book felt the same!

    I understand what you are saying. I stop reading them for awhile and eventually will go back to reading them. Sometimes, it will be only a few months, other times it might be a few years. It all depends on what I am in the mood to read during that time.
