2016 Reading List

I’m reading my way through the alphabet this year….I’d love to hear any suggestions you have. My goal is at least two new-to-me authors a month (the authors in bold are the new ones)…

January – A/B

Cherry Adair – Rip Tide – Always a favorite J author.

Cat Adams – Blood Song I loved the world building. I was slightly disappointed in the lack of relationships – it’s the romance writer in me. I’m looking forward to picking up the next book in the series.

Anna Bishop – Written In Red and Murder of the crows (the Others series) – this is her young adult series. I LOVE IT! I’ve read everything Bishop has written. And while far different than her adult books, I enjoyed every page.

Nevada Barr – A Superior Death. This takes place in my back yard…

Suzanne Brockmann – Born to Darkness – First book I read in this series.

Terry Bolryder – Bear to the Bone – Yet another great series to add to my list.

February C/D

Jennifer Crusie/Bob Mayer – Wild Ride

Cleo Coyle – A brew to Kill

Richard Castle – Frozen Heat

Patricia Cornwell – The Scarpetta Factor

Joseph Delaney – The Last Apprentice – Wrath of the BloodEye ( I started this series after watching the movie The Seventh Son. I’ve never read a book that differed so completely from a movie. Sadly, I liked the movie far more than the books. But once I start a series I feel compelled to read it to the end. This is one of the few – and I mean few – things I have OCD about.)

Diane Mott Davidson – The Whole Enchilada – tried the Not-so-skinny spinach dip recipe in the back of the book – oh my. So good but I could feel my thighs growing with every bit.

March E/F

Jeaniene Frost – Once Burned  

Jeaniene Frost – One Grave at a Time

Joanne Fluke – Key Lime Pie Murder Keeping with my foodie theme

Brian Freeman – Bone House

The Chase – Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

Angel of Darkness – Cynthia Eden

Cynthia Eden – Bite the Dust

Looking ahead to April and the G/H authors

These are the books that are currently on my list (4/2). I’ll update with any changes at the end of the month.

Julie Hyzy – Eggsecutive Orders (all my foodie books have been new authors… I thought I was a foodie reader but maybe not as much as I thought)

CC Hunter – Born to Midnight (not my usual ya read but a student wanted me to read it so we could chat about it)

David Gibbons – The Lost Tomb

Anthony Horowitz – Raven’s Gate

William Goldman – The Princess Bride (how can you do G authors without reading this?)

Lisa Gardner – Crash & Burn
