Tuesday Ten: Great Books

April 22, 2008 at 9:57 am (Tuesday Ten) ()

Yeah, I’m making this up as I go along, but I think it’s Robin who has a Tuesday Ten, and I always liked The Count on Sesame Street, so let’s go with the theme.

The Count






Ten! Ten recent great books I’ve read! A-ha-ha-ha!!! (And they’re in alphabetical order so no slights can be inferred.)

  1. Buffy Season 8 by Joss Whedon (It’s Joss. I don’t need to say any more, do I?)
  2. Claiming the Courtesan by Anna Campbell (A fabulous debut that brings to mind the past rich, dark historical romances with wonderful characters.)
  3. Do Me, Do My Roots by Eileen Rendahl (I was in love by page 14 and had never wanted sisters so badly. Just wonderful.)
  4. gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson (If you’re not hooked in the first two paragraphs, you don’t have a pulse. If, after you’ve finished, you don’t want to read more of her work, you don’t have a heart.)
  5. A Lick of Frost by Laurell K. Hamilton (Thank God. She didn’t jump the shark with this one. Read it in 2 days, then turned around and read it again.)
  6. A Little Ray of Sunshine by Lani Diane Rich (Lani has such a light touch with her women’s fiction that you’re not aware how much she’s moved you until you find yourself crying.)
  7. Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase (One of the best hero-heroine pairings ever. I now understand why this is on almost every romance author’s must read list.)
  8. Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas (Another fabulous debut and will probably make my list of Books I Wish I Had Written. Can’t wait for her next one to be released this summer.)
  9. Sight Unseen by Samantha Graves (Okay, if you can figure out who did it before I did, you’re much smarter than I am–delicious suspense with lush settings. Her description of the church in Cuba was so vivid I can still see it in my head.)
  10. Small Favor by Jim Butcher (After the Sue the Dino I wasn’t sure where he was going, but he’s back in the fey politics and the cast of characters I’ve come to love. Read it in 3 days.)
  11. Veil of Roses by Laura Fitzgerald (This is such a sweet and tender book dealing with such a deep and difficult issue that I dare you not to be sucked in. And yes, I cried. What do you think I am–heartless?)
I know. That’s eleven. I said I liked The Count, I didn’t say I could. And I never said that these were all brand-spanking-new releases, just books I’ve read (or maybe re-read because they’re so dang good) recently.
My blog. My rules. 🙂
