Do you find that the previous book you read has an impact on how you read and absorb your next?

I'm reading a book which could not be any more different than the last one I read yet for some reason the way in which I read this one and imagine each scene is the exact same way as the last.

I still get the same feeling as the last book. I'm sorry I can't explain it better.

It's as if it's an extension of the last book I read despite there being no reason for my mind to think it is or it feels as if the last book is getting in the way of this one. Perhaps I just jumped into a new book too quickly, I'm not sure.

I know this is very random and might sound like nonsense, maybe, but I was just wondering if this happens to anyone else much?
