Best Blogs 2010

So, as I mentioned my love of all things blog, I thought I would do a little tribute to the author blogs which I read on a regular basis. Also, if you're bored of my blog already, this list might give you something more entertaining. So, without further ado...

Oh, how I love Meg Cabot. I love her books (Princess Diaries, anyone?), and I love her blog. She's such a cool person. I mean, I think this photo explains it all:

Meg's blog is everything an author's blog should be: well-written, entertaining, and smart. Plus, she makes TONS of pop culture references (any Gossip Girl fans should see this post). She also makes great book recommendations for anything and everything chick lit. Meg is absolutely hilarious, making her blog one of the best.

Sarah Dessen is an young adult author too (The Truth About Forever, This Lullaby, etc), but her blog is very different from Meg's. Sarah talks about more about her day to day life and her family. She does include a fair number of pop culture references, but they are all generally tied to a few topics--Friday Night Lights and Good Morning America, for example. Now, I don't watch either of these programs (do they show GMA in Canada?), but I still enjoy Sarah's blog. It's very relatable and refreshingly real. Plus, I like that she writes every monday, wednesday, and friday--I have something to look forward to when I log on to my computer! (What? It's not like anyone ever emails me!).

This is a relatively new blog for me (the others I have been following since middle school). I started reading it after I finished Jen's first two memoirs--Bitter is the New Black and Bright Lights, Big Ass. Jen's blog is very funny and honest, just like her books. I really enjoyed this recent post.

I think I actually prefer Jennifer Weiner's blog to her books (Goodnight Nobody, Little Earthquakes, etc), except, of course:

(and for those of you who gasped at that title, the book is not nearly as naughty as it sounds). She's entertaining and she raises interesting issues. Her blogging is sporadic, but it's good when you can get it.

I'm trying to think if there are anymore, but I think that's it. I hope you found at least one of them interesting (of course, if you hate chick lit, you probably won't like any of these...).

Good night and good blogging. 'Til later.
