Listless Monday, Utah Authors Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

I'm happy to be participating in Natasha's next great idea, Utah Author Month and thus, this week's Listless Monday will celebrate my local (at least for now) Utah authors.  So, I've tried to compile reviews I've done for books written by Utah authors.  This means it obviously isn't going to be a complete list.  For something along those lines, see this goodreads Books By Utah Authors list.

Do you have favorite local authors?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Awesome list! I want to read Entwined too, but don't have it as of yet.

  2. Wow! What a list. And the Goodreads one! Good heavens! I had know idea there were that many local authors! Sheesh! I don't think I'll be joining this month, though. Too many are YA and I'm a little burned out right now.

  3. Suey, I ordered it, so hopefully it will come in time for me to read and review this month...

    Jenny, yeah I can see why you might be a bit burned out. Maybe you could find a few adult Utah authors out there...or MG. Or just read what you want :)


Love it when you comment!
