At the beginning of the year, I joined in on Florinda's Blogging Authors Reading Project. The project was basically to read books by authors who blog. I follow a number of author blogs including group blogs such as Murderati, Running with Quills and Deadline Dames. I've been working my way slowly through all their books.
Murderati is a group blog of 14 mystery writers includes Pari Noskin Taichert, Alafair Burke, Allison Brennan, Brett Battles, Cornelia Read, J.D. Rhoades, J.T. Ellison, Louise Ure, Robert Gregory Brown, Zoe Sharp, Toni McGee Causey, Stephen Jay Schwartz, Alex Sokoloff and Tess Gerritsen. Wonderful blog. If you haven't been following them, you should. I've read stories by Tess Gerritsen, Robert Gregory Browne, J.T. Ellison, and Allison Brennan. This year I read
Toni McGee Causey's Charmed and Dangerous
Louise Ure's Liar's Anonymous and The Fault Tree (e-book)
Tess Gerritsen's The Sinner
Running with Quills was a blog with 7 great romance suspense authors including Susan Anderson, Stella Cameron, Kate Douglas, Lori Foster, Jayne Ann Krentz, Elizabeth Lowell and Carla Neggers. They just recently decided to pull the plug on the blog. I've read stories by Susan Anderson, Lori Foster, Elizabeth Lowell, Jayne Ann Krentz and Carla Neggers so far. However I love most of the authors and will continue to read their stories. This year I completed
Carla Neggers' Cold Pursuit and Cold River
Jayne Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick The Third Circle
Lori Foster aka L.L. Foster's Servant: The Kindred,
Lori Foster's Caught in the Act and the Buckhorn Brothers series.
Deadline Dames is the group blog of paranormal romance authors including Rachel Vincent, Keri Arthur, Devon Monk, Jackie Kessler, Karen Mahoney, Lilith Saintcrow, Rinda Elliot and Toni Andrews.
I read the entire Riley Jensen Guardian Series by Keri Arthur
My Soul to Lose. and Stray by Rachel Vincent
The Kill Zone is a group blog with authors James Scott Bell, John Ramsey Miller, John Gilstrap, Joe Moore, Michelle Gagnon, Kathryn Lilley, and Clare Langley Hawthorne.
I read Michelle Gagnon's The Gatekeeper and Kidnap and Ransom.
I also read several other blogging authors books including:
Robert Liparulo's Comes a Horseman
Ted Dekker's "Burn"
Susan Helene Gottfried Shapeshifter Demo Tapes year 1 and year 2 (e-books) and Trevor's Song.Christine Fonseca's Emotional Intensity in Gifted Children
I'm going to continue the project in 2011 along with Florinda and will writing up a 2011 post detailing which books will be reading from the blogs I've been following. I've already acquired a number of their books, so won't be breaking my self imposed buying ban with the beginning of the new year.
