My Playlist and Author Obsessions

I LOVE this week's questions!

Q. What is on your current playlist right now?

Bruno Mars "Grenade"
(hardcore stalkery love gets me every time)
Leona Lewis' latest album
(esp. "Happy")
Jessie J 
(this woman is a musical genius)


"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"





This is EXACTLY how I like to read.  I become a fan of an author, not of individual books.  Here are some authors that I will read ANYTHING by:

Maria V. Snyder
Alice Hoffman
Jessica Day George
Shannon Hale
Kristin Cashore

As you can see, the genre I author-stalk in is YA high fantasy, which is also what I love writing in as well.

  3. I'd catch a grenaaaade for you~! :) The song is a little too intense for me for just listening purposes, but great for karaoke!

    This post reminds me I need to pick up Graceling again.

  4. I get addicted to authors, too. Historical fiction is the genre that generally hooks me.

  7. The first time I heard the title fo the Bruno Mars song, I thought it was a reference to the Jersey Shore. They call women they consider unattractive "grenades." So I was pleasantly suprised to find out it was about stalker-y love.

  11. Lots of things are on my playlist, including Bruno. :D

    And YES, I do rush out and buy the author's other books if I read one of hers and fall in love with it.

  12. Hey Sophia. Just stopping by to say hello and that I'm loving your playlist, especially Jessie J. She's so talented. I heard her sing Mama Knows Best on youtube and I've been a fan ever since.

    Oh and the answer to your question is yes. If I love one book, I usually search for more by that same author.

  14. Yep, that's how I find books too for the most part. I turn into a (somewhat) 'stalker' once I like a book by an author, hehehe....
