  1. I decided to join in this year, but turned it into a top 14 as I couldn’t limit it to just 10. I always enjoy seeing what people’s favorites are. Just like Anne a Kelley Armstrong book made it on my list as well, although a different book/series I am still behind on that series and haven’t read The Deepest of Secrets yet. I recognize some of the other authors on your list, but haven’t read their books.

    @ Sophia I was excited to see a Veronica Scott’s book on your list. I haven’t read Star Cruise: Outbreak yet though. I remember you mentioning Carolyn Brown’s books multiple times in our chats, I have to check out one of her books someday. Smart to add a box set to your list ;).

  2. Having two separate lists of favorites is not cheating. Twenty is totally acceptable when you divide them into categories. LOL So many great books! I haven’t read any of them, sadly. Hopefully in the future. I can’t believe I missed that Under A Veiled Moon came out! I loved the first book in that series.

  3. Anne, Soul Taken, Ruby Fever, Dark Horse, The Deepest of Secrets, and The Wrong Victim are also on the list I’m compiling. We have very similar tastes. Must try that Faith Hunter and that Lisa Gardner is one I want to listen to as well. So far it’s not in my library.

    Sophia, I enjoyed Riverbend Reunion as well and would like to try several on your list.

    The only one I’ve read is Verity although I read it the previous year when it came out in December. It was a 5 star for me as well. I think most of my favorites were on audio this year.

      • I was left thinking that Verity really was a monster, and that she really did think and do all the horrible things she wrote about. It all fit for me. But maybe I stuck with that theory because the alternative was too disturbing!
