It was fun to look back and see what I was reading all year long–some of them feel like I finished them so long ago, and some I remember every detail like I read them yesterday. It was another year of suspense and mystery for me, with a little fantasy thrown in. Not usually my favorite genre, but I may be changing my mind a little. In no particular order, please enjoy ten of my favorites that I read this year!
Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter This is about to be a Netflix original, and you will be riveted by it.
The Hiding Place by C.J. Tudor Another book about a homecoming gone wrong by the author of The Chalk Man.
The Lost Man by Jane Harper An amazing tale of love, death and survival in the Australian outback. One of my favorite authors who also wrote The Dry.
Watching You by Lisa Jewell No one’s secrets are really secret. Someone is always watching.
The Witch Elm by Tana French A stand alone from the wonderful author of the Dublin Murder Squad series.
I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan A twenty-year-old murder and a podcast questioning whether the man convicted actually did it–what could go wrong?
I Let You Go by Claire Mackintosh As usual, this author has you suspecting everyone until the bitter end.
A Better Man by Louise Penny You probably won’t find a list of mine without Inspector Gamache on it, and I hope it remains that way for years to come.
Crimson Lake by Candace Fox A suspense-filled novel set in Australia which is the beginning of a series– some of the most interesting characters I’ve ever met.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi The first of a fantasy trilogy that is a must read for adults and teens. I’m on the holds list for the second book which just came out!
