Just an unofficial survey: Which author's backlists are you returning to for reading material?

Thanks, all!

Currently working through Jo Goodman's backlist.

Prior to that, did major gloms of Lois McMaster Bujold and Mary Balogh.

I have Jo Goodman's backlist, too. I also glommed many, many Mary Balogh books. And when I first started reading Linda Howard, I glommed every single one of hers. And then there's Julia Quinn, Anne Stuart, Jo Beverly, Julie Garwood, and Hannah Howell. I'll stop there.

I read "Family Blessings" by LaVryle Spencer a while back and I decided to check-out her back list. I just read "Hummingbird" on the weekend and I thoroughly disliked it, which is a shame as it tops her favorite books by favorite authors list.

I have had much more joy going back to Mary Balogh's trads and Jo Beverley's backlist.

I've tried to acquire as many Lisa Kleypas' back list as possible, and I've recently bought every single one of Julie Garwood's historical's I could lay my hands on.

+IHS+

Last year, which was when I rediscovered Romance after an eight-year hiatus, I glommed Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, and Jo Beverley.

I had been planning to spend this year glomming Mary Jo Putney and Jo Goodman, but then I got sidetracked by an unexpected obsession with paranormals. So now I'm glomming Kresley Cole and Christine Feehan instead.

Mary Balogh. While thinning out my book collection, to about half, I discovered many books by this author...a huge stack of them. I've read 2 or 3 and have enjoyed them. I'll be glomming her this summer, and looking forward to it.

I remember glomming Linda Howard like there's no tomorrow a long time ago, then Suze Brockman, Anne Stuart (scored 40 of her novels on ebay in one shot! My best score ever!!), Judith McNaught, Karen Moning, and Emma Holly (the most recent glom). I'm searching for a new (to me) author to glom at this point at the library.

I did the same with Howard, Brockman and Stuart. I'd take them from the library, one right after the other, and eat them up like candy. It was so much fun.

Jayne Ann Krentz

Once I discovered her, I bought as many books by her--in all her personas--as I could find new. I also haunted local UBS to find her Stephanie James Silhouette books and her Jayne Castle Candlelight books and her JAK older Dell and Harlequin books. Now I just buy each new book as it comes out. I wish that Dell would reissue her Guinevere Jones mysteries.

Already glommed: Julia Quinn

Currently glomming at high speed: LaVyrle Spencer (1 to go); Susan Andersen (getting close); Jo Goodman (got a ways to go but somehow manage to re-read many of them anyway)

More slowly glomming: Linda Howard (working through it slowly); Marsha Canham (just started)

Considering glomming but miles away from it: Nora Roberts (who could ever have all of them??)

Yuri: I highly recommend LaVyrle Spencer's Morning Glory and That Camden Summer over either Family Blessings or Hummingbird. Morning Glory is one of my all-time favorites; Hummingbird doesn't hold a candle to it. I liked Family Blessings.

Thanks for the suggestions. I liked Family Blessings too. The Gamble is the next in my pile but I might put it off for a while.

I actually ordered my tbr list in oldest to newest so I am reading some old books by authors I barely remember and some of them are quite good. I really enjoyed A Groom for Red Riding Hood by Jennifer Greene and A Knight in Shining Armour by Jude Deveraux. I think Hummingbird was the exception.

Who haven't I glommed seems more like it. All the major romances writers I've liked I've glommed. Presently I am glomming Loretta Chase. I am now reading Captives of the Night with these three to read next: Mr. Impossible(Library just recently got it), The English Witch, and Isabella. Just finished reading Lord of Scoundrels(yeah, finally) and The Last Hellion. So with the exception of her latest release, I will be caught up with Chase (I think).

Several months ago her books were sparse at the Library. But now, someone in Acquisitions has discovered her wonderful stories and have been adding her books to inventory. I think there are going to be lots of happy Chase readers in my community.
