I've learned to despise Dan Brown, Meg Cabot, and Nicholas Sparks (just to name a few) after reading three of their books in a row. I feel miserable every time I finish their books. I complain endlessly about their writing and I wonder why their books are popular. Yet every time their new book comes out, I just can't resist pulling it out of the shelves and reading it cover to cover. I do this partly because I know what to expect from them and their books don't take any brain power (I rarely spend more than two days on them). Which authors do you have a similar kind of hate-love relationship with?
