I love discovering new authors, it's one of the most amazing aspects of being a blogger--be it through a recommendation, someone reaching out to us, the cover, or the blurb. Giving unknown, or new to me, authors a chance it something fundamentally important when doing this. And while you sometimes might end up disappointed, sometimes you discover a book and author you love! This is what I love about being a blogger.
