Today the topic of Top Ten Tuesdays is Top Ten Books Read So Far This Year.

Happily, I’ve mostly read books I really liked and it was a bit difficult to choose just ten of them:

1, Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher books
I’ve listened seven of them so far this year and I can’t really choose just one. They’re all delightful mysteries set in the 1920s Australia.

2, Barrayar by Lois McMaster Bujold
A relisten and one of my favorites in the series.

3, Emperor Mollusk versus the Sinister Brain by A. Lee Martinez
A parody of science fiction /superhero books, starring a genius super villain.

4, Reach by Karen A. Wyle
A science fiction book focusing on exploration rather than war.

5, Blood by Tara Maya
Sixth book in a fantasy series set in Stone Age equivalent world.

6, The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin
A fantasy book set in a world inspired by Ancient Egypt, with a unique magic system.

7, Servant of the Underworld by Aliette de Bodard
A fantasy book set in the Aztec empire, with working blood magic.

8, All Spell Breaks Loose by Lisa Shearin
The last book in a series I’ve enjoyed a lot.

9, Jocelynn Drake: Burn the Night
Another last in a series.

10, Jocelynn Drake: Angel’s Ink
Drake’s new series.
