This month’s 10 is the 10 best books I’ve read in ’10.
Some of these will be entire series, I refuse to pick just one book from a larger body of work.
2. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe.
3. The Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson (Yes, those Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books.)
5. Johannes Cabal The Detective by Jonathan L. Howard (Second in the series, read in order for best effect.)
Books are in no particular order – ok #1 is #1 for a damn good reason. Kane has done something new & wonderful in the Urban Fantasy universe. Pay attention to her & Meljean Brook, both of these authors are going to be considered defining for their genres. Come back in 5 years and congratulate me on my psychic prowess. I can wait, I can also say “I told you so.” 😉
All the others… just buy them and read them. Seriously, I love them all and it’s hard for me to stop at 10. I easily have another 10 I could recommend, but I edited this list for popularity too. I pulled off some books, like Changes by Jim Butcher – great book, but the man gets plenty of love. Yes, Larsson isn’t hurting either, but when I’m obsessed with your characters… ok I could say the same for Butcher. See why this is making me pull my hair out?
I can talk for hours about books, remember I blog occasionally over at From The TBR Pile. I’m not much of a reviewer, but I do my best and I never recommend a book I don’t love. You can also find me over on Goodreads, Missy Ann Walker.
