What are your favorite books so far this year?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. You’ve got me wanting to read Raven Black. Looks like an interesting series and I love the setting. And of course Crombie is always fantastic! I’m going to try to get the audio for Ready Player One. Once I heard Wil Wheaton did the reading I was sold! Great list!


    1. I really want to read the next book in the Shetland series, but I don’t have it so will have to wait. And yes, as you know, Katherine, I’m loving all the Crombie books. I listened to Lock In which Wil Wheaton narrated and really liked it. I read the e-book of Ready Player One, but the whole time I could see it as an audiobook or movie and sometimes felt I’d actually listened or watched it…LOL.
