Being a voracious reader, I go through tons of books during a given year, usually on my trusty kindle.
In no certain order then, here are my most memorable of 2016 (I tried to stick with books released in 2016 since like Jeffe mentioned earlier in the week, I often read ARC's of future books that aren't out yet and/or I read books that have been out forever but I just found them):
Michelle Diener’s Class 5 Series (three books): Dark Horse, Dark Deeds, Dark Minds. Although the first book was released in 2015, the other two came out this year and the series as a whole is excellent. I’ve written about, talked about and recommended these books everywhere. I loved the three smart Earth women heroines and the spooky smart Class 5 Artificial Intelligences, AND the alien heroes were excellent stalwart military dudes with sexy Tolkien elf-like pointy ears. Definitely in my "I remember the book" and the "I reread the book" category.
Writings from Ancient Egypt by Toby Wilkinson. I do plan to get back to writing new books in my
OK, I do really badly with these numbered lists because there are so many good books.....I usually cheat and list more than I'm supposed to...
But (I'm heaving a DEEP sigh here), ok.....for my third choice I'm going to list A Faerie Tale: The Enchanted and A Faerie Tale: The Beloved, both by Genevra Thorne. Her use of language is wonderful and really put me into the world of the Fae. Her plots were cool and twisty and I wish there were more in the series. I didn't expect to fall so much in love with the characters and the settings and then I did.
But in fairness, I must also mention our Jeffe's Pages of the Mind, which I adore, and Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs and Dark Planet Warriors by Anna Carven.
OK, I'll get off the stage now!
