Ahahaha... as a librarian, this made me laugh!! If only that were true. Incidentally, we've been having a LOT of trouble with the kids from our local Catholic school lately.

And to answer the OP, I've been disappointed by a few sequels to good books - like the YA series "The Last Survivors" by Susan Beth Pfeffer. The first book (Life as We Knew It) was soooo good, second book just meh, and third book I couldn't even finish. I didn't bother with the fourth.

Just because some people know no standards is no reason to drop the bar so that mediocrity can become acceptable. Libraries are special places. The least and hickiest of them deserve respect (and I have been to some of the hickiest).

Barbara Kingsolver had several books I loved....until I picked up her novel The Lacuna. I couldn't believe that she had written it. I never finished it.

This is a similar thread (I may have already mentioned her on this). //www.city-data.com/forum/books...inted-you.html
