Yikes, that title makes me feel a bit old. Nine years of bloggage. Poor old blog has been a bit neglected this year as I’ve been so busy writing and launching books and doing various stuff. But I’m happy to report that my reading numbers have lifted back over the 100 books read (not counting audiobooks) after last year’s low due to vertigo. So in the spirit of keeping up with tradition and talking about my favourite subject, here are some of the books I really loved this year.
Captive Prince (Vol 1 & 2) by C.S. Pacat. Great M/M political twisty fantasy. Glommed it up then re-read it not long after.
Play by Kylie Scott (have enjoyed all three books in the series of excellent NA-ish rockstar romance but Mal is my fave. Can’t help it even if he is a drummer 😀 )
Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren. Another great sexy NA-ish series.
Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan. Last book in a modern gothic fantasy series. May have been tears and I don’t say that often.
The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles. Dark victorian M/M fantasy of much goodness.
Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews. This series just keeps on getting better.
Stray by Andrea K. Host. Great YA sci fi which reminds me a bit of Dianna Wynne Jones
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. Just a lovely, gorgeous, brilliant fantasy. Oh that it would be a series. But it’s not.
The Honeymoon Trap by Kelly Hunter. Perfect brilliant romance. Now if only it was longer…
Satisfaction by Sarah Mayberry. More brilliant romance. Hot tattoo artist. What more can you want?
City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn. As much as I’ll miss Julia Grey, I’ve really enjoyed Deanna’s 1920’s books.
Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear. As always, great fantasy with a unique world.
There are more but I don’t want to make this the longest blog post ever, so will stop now. Here’s to another year of great books next year. What were your faves this year…anything I should add to the list?
