Tuesday Thingers!

Today's topic: LibraryThing authors. Who are your LibraryThing authors? What books of theirs do you have? Do you ever comment on an author's LT page? Have you received any comments from an author on your LT account?

My LT authors are Janice Erlbaum, Sandra Gulland, Doreen Orion, Michelle Richmond, Marisa del los Santos, and Lisa Unger. I have at least one book from each author, but may not have read them yet!

I have had Janice Erlbaum's Have You Found Her for a few months, but just recently got Girlbomb from BM. I am a stickler for reading books in order, so now that I have both of them, I hope to get to them soon.

Sandra Gulland's Josephine Bonaparte Collection was a recent find at a FOL sale that I couldn't resist. I love historical fiction, and once again, hope to get to them soon.

I heard about Doreen Orion's Queen of the Road on LT and knew I had to read it! I love memoirs and can't resist a travel memoir of any kind. I recently mooched this one and am taking it with me on vacation this weekend.

I read The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond earlier this year and loved it! I also have an ARC of No One You Know to read soon so I can pass it on in a book ring.

Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos is another book that hasn't made it to the top of Mt TBR yet. I have heard wonderful things about it and Belong To Me though.

I read Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger some time back and loved it! The second in the series, Sliver of Truth, got some lukewarm reviews from friends so I put off reading it. I recently got Black Out, which I have heard good things about, and hope to get caught up on the series soon.

I have received comments from Lisa Unger and recently a comment from D.J. Murphy who also lives in Colorado. His book A Thousand Veils looks really good! I love the fact that there are authors among us on LT! The author chats are a wonderful way to learn more about an author you love or to discover a new favorite.

If your work is getting in the way of blogging, it sounds like it's time to find a new job! ;)

We have Orion in common :)

I agree, it's awesome that there are authors among us :)

With regards to Lisa Unger, if you liked Beautiful Lies, you'll probably like the other two. The key is being able to suspend your sense of disbelief because they are so unbelievable. If you can do that, you'll probably like them!
