Booking Through Thursday: Authors Talking

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?

I read many many author blogs. Too many. I can't keep up. And I'm always adding to the list. It's the same old story. Too many blogs, not enough time.

I read them mostly to learn about them personally. And to follow them through the steps of publication, if they share, which mostly they do. It's very fun to feel like you are a part of the whole process and to cheer for them and celebrate with them as things happen, even if they never even know you exist.

Some of my favorite ones are:

Some others I read now and then:

And I wish, oh I wish, that Markus Zusak would start blogging! Does anyone know if he does and maybe I'm just unlucky in my search? The only thing I've found is this, but nothing that points to an actual blog.

Anyway, there's many more that I've stumbled upon but haven't stuck with for very long. Let me know if I'm missing an amazing one that I should be reading! And let me know if you click on one of these that I've shared and what you think of it.


  1. I love to read Shannon Hale's, J. Scott Savage, Janette Rallison, and I like Jessica Day George's blog as well. I think she is hilarious!:)

  2. I shouldn't have read your post...because now I know what I'll be doing this afternoon. Checking out these author blogs. LOL

  3. I didn't know Robin McKinley had a blog! she's one of my favorite authors. Now I'll have to check it out- maybe this time I'll keep reading (I don't follow any author blogs).

  4. Wow - what a great collection of blogs. I may just have discovered some authors I'm interesting in reading and finding out more about. Thanks.
