 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

This question comes from Chris:
Here’s something for Valentine’s Day.
Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?
Hmmmm. Well, yes. I was a huge fan of Anita Blake up until book 10. Actually I read the series back to back twice, which I had never done before. For the next year or so I was obsessed with these books. The sequels came out and so much had changed that it was disheartening to say the least. I was even on the message forums at Hamilton's website. I became so disappointed with each new book I decided to stop and had no interest reading further into the series, because the change of characters was starting to ruin the memories I had of the good times with the series. I haven't read the last two books now, and don't really want to. I could be lured back but only if sooo much was changed, which I doubt will happen.
