Booking Through Thursday: 2/10/11

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly event hosted HERE. A Weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.

There’s something wonderful about getting in on the ground floor of an author’s career–about being one of the first people to read and admire them, before they became famous best-sellers.
Which authors have you been lucky enough to discover at the very beginning of their careers?
And, if you’ve never had that chance, which author do you WISH you’d been able to discover at the very beginning?

Yara's Answer: Wow, this is a great question. I think I will answer both. Julie Kagawa, author of the Iron Fey series. She started last year and has just blown up. The series is magical. Then I would also say Stephenie Meyer, author of Twilight Saga. I would have liked to have known about Twilight since it first came out, I discovered it right when New Moon released in stores. 

Ana's Answer: Thats a really good one.   I would have to say J.R. Ward (the WARDden).  I wish I would have known about her and her books sooner.  I would have loved to have read "Wrath's" story for the first time along with everyone else.  But maybe having to wait a few months to be able to read the next book would have killed me.  I truly enjoyed being able to read almost all the books back-to back. She is an awesome writer and very dedicated to her work and thanks to that we have "The Brotherhood."


  1. My answer includes Twilight.
    I'm glad I didn't know about Julie Kagawa from the beginning I am only going to read that series when I have got all three books.

    Here's Mine:

  2. There are a lot of good writers out there. The book Paranormalcy by Kiersten White is one. It's the first book to read in the series. Or my other new favorite Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate) by Gail Carriger. I can not wait for the other books in the series to come out this fall. The one I wished I found out at the beginning is The Love at Stake series. The first book is called How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks. I didn't even read the first book. I read book number four. The Undead Next Door. It was so good and funny. That I had to read more from the writer.
