Booking Through Thursday


1. How did you come across your favorite author(s)? Recommended by a friend? Stumbled across at a bookstore? A book given to you as a gift?

I came across majority of my favorite authors through message boards. To me, message boards are a good way to find new authors and chat with other book lovers/ Plus, nine out of ten times, an author recommendation I get on a MB turns out to be a great one.

2. Was it love at first sight? Or did the love affair evolve over a long acquaintance?

A couple of authors (J.R. Ward, Karen Marie Moning...) were love at first sight but most evolved over time. Ironically enough, after a few books the "love at first sight" authors lost their appeal to me where the "evolving loves" (Kresley Cole, Shana Abe, Nalini Singh...) just keep on getting better!

  3. Julia, I actually discovered Moning this year and loved her at first but not so much anymore.

    Thanks Bookgal. Yes, other blogs give me lots of good book ideas.
