The books I loved the most in 2013, and now I just scroll through my list of reviews looking for those 10 star reviews (or higher) and not counting the re-reads is amazing. Here it is, in reading order:
Suzanne Johnson – River Road
Alyssa Day – Heart of Atlantis
Ellery Adams – Peach Pies and Alibis
Sierra Dean – Grave Secret
Anne Bishop – Written in Red
Jenn Bennett – Binding the Shadows
Leann Sweeney –The Cat, the Mill and the Murder
Nalini Singh – Heart of Obsidian
Laurell K. Hamilton – Affliction
Jean Johnson – Hellfire
Ilona Andrews – Magic rises
Heather Webber – Perfectly Matched
Faith Hunter – Jane Yellowrock series almost all 10 star reviews.
J.D. Robb – Taken in Death
Sierra Dean – Secret Unleashed
Jenn Bennett – Bitter Spirits
Thea Harrison – Kinked
Nora Roberts – Bed of roses
Gini Koch – Alien Research
If I have to choose from all those books, which book I loved the most, without hesitation, as I have already read it 5 times: Written in Red by Anne Bishop. This also means that the book I am most highly anticipating for next year, is the second book in this new series, Murder of Crows. And second place is for Damnation by Jean Johnson, the fourth and perhaps final book in the Theirs not to reason why series.
Of course I always long for new books by my favourite authors! And the more authors on my autobuy list, the more books to read each year.
I have also compiled a list of new authors I discovered this year and who have landed firmly on my autobuy list. It is a nice mix of paranormal and cozy mystery authors. I don’t think I have tried new historical romance authors this year at all.
J.F. Lewis, although I am not sure about his series other than Void City
And last but certainly not least, I am very happy with the contributions of three of my bookish friends, Maia, Karin and Peggy, who add their monthly recommendations to my blog. Thank you for your efforts ladies, and I do hope you will keep doing this in 2014. I do enjoy your posts, and I hope many of my readers do as well.
