Booking Through ThursdayCheck Spelling


Suggested by Barbara H.:
A comment on someone else’s BTT question this week inspired this question:

Do you read any author’s blogs? If so, are you looking for information on their next project? On the author personally? Something else?

Yes, I do read authors' blogs - be it my favourite authors or new-to-me authors. Most of the times, I want to find out information about their latest releases or if they are working on any new projects at the moment. Besides these, I also enjoy reading a scoope of their life and their opinions on any other things. Generally, I read them as I read other blogs.

Below is a list of authors I googled that have their own blogs (Please let me know if you came across any authors who have their blogs so I can add them onto my sidebar. Thanks!).

Amanda Stevens, Amulya Malladi, Ann Aguirre, Anne Stuart, Clea Simon, Colleen Gleason, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Crusie, Karen E. Olson, Khaled Hosseini, Laurell K Hamilton, Linda Olsson, Lisa Unger, Lora Leigh, Matthew Reilly, Nalini Singh, Neil Gaiman, PC Cast, Shannon Hale, Tess Gerritsen

How about you? Do you read authors' blogs?

  2. Nymeth Says:

    I have 5 on my read: Neil Gaiman's, John Green's, Shannon Hale's, Nick Hornby's and Martin Millar's. The first two are my favourites. Fortunately, they're also the ones who post most often :P


  3. Sandy Nawrot Says:

    I don't read author blogs as much as I probably should. I do have a few of my favorites that I follow.


  4. Debi Says:

    I don't really read any authors blogs, at least not on a regular basis. :(
    I really wish there more time in a day, because I know I would really enjoy following many.


  5. Beth F Says:

    I don't read author's blogs or visit their websites on a regular basis, but I do check them out once in a while.

    Like Debi said, there's only so much time in a day.


  6. Yvonne Says:

    I should really check out more author blogs. I don't really have any regulars that I go to. You have a nice list of author blogs.


  7. Jeane Says:

    Nick Hornby has a blog, and I think Clare Bell does, too. Those are the only ones I can think of, from all the authors I've read- because I usually don't go searching for author blogs.


  8. I am going to have to start reading more author's blogs. I enjoyed reading your post. Happy BTT!



  9. Bluestocking Says:

    I forgot to include my list!!


  10. Barbara H. Says:

    I agree with your thoughts on reading author's blogs. I am not familiar with any of the ones you listed, but I included a list on the ones I read on my blog.


  11. Great list, will be checking them out. I love Lora Leigh. I enjoy reading authors blogs - they are so interesting.


  12. Matt Says:

    This week’s question unearths the truth that I do not have many favorite authors. Most of the authors whose works I continue to re-read and explore are dead. I have favorite books. The books have to speak for themselves.


  13. purplg8r Says:

    I am going to add Jennifer Crusie to my list


  14. Alice Teh Says:

    Nice list, Melody! I only read Karen E. Olson, Neil Gaiman, Stephenie Meyer, Colleen Gleason, and Anne Stuart's blogs. Am not a regular reader, though...


  15. Melody Says:

    Sally - Thanks! :)

    Nymeth - Thanks for the list! I'll have to check them out!

    Sandy - I don't follow them on a daily basis either. Usually, I'll pop over if I've some time to spare.

    Debi - Me too! I try my best to read as many as possible, if not I'll leave it to the other day.

    Beth - I share the same sentiments.

    Yvonne - I don't visit them regularly, but I do visit a few of my favourite ones. :)

    Jeane - Thanks! Will have to check them out too! :)


  16. Melody Says:

    Charli, Gautami - Thanks! :)

    Bluestocking - It's never too late to amend. :)

    Barbara - Great! I'll have to check out your post. :)

    Robin - Lora Leigh is one of my favourite authors. She writes great romance suspense, as well as paranormals.

    Matt - "The books have to speak for themselves." This is oh so true!

    Purplg8r - That's great! :)

    Alice - Thanks! I enjoy reading those authors' blogs you mentioned... they're my favourite authors! :D


  17. Julia Says:

    I think you and I have same idea, Melody!

    Hey thanks to the link for Nalini Singh. I kept forgetting add her on my blog :)


  18. Melody Says:

    Julia - Glad we share the same views. :)


  19. naida Says:

  20. Melody Says:

    Naida - I hope you'll read Lora Leigh's book soon. Her romance suspense is hot. ;)


  21. Iliana Says:

    Wow, that's cool Melody. There are so many authors I love and I know quite a few of them have blogs but I don't follow them, well except for Karen Olson's blog. I think it's just that I feel like I have a more personal connection with other book bloggers so I'd prefer to spend my time with them.


  22. Melody Says:

    Iliana - Karen Olson's blog is one of the coolest! And like you, I don't follow them regularly, although I do try to make some time to read their blogs. :)
