Today the topic of Top Ten Tuedays is Top 10 books I’ve read this year.
This turned out to be difficult, as usual. So far, I’ve completed 86 books and none of them were stinkers. But some did stand out more than the rest. In the order I read them:
1, Scott E. Tabert: A Midsummer Night’s Steampunk
A steampunk books heavily inspired by Shakespeare.
2, Diane Duane: Dark Mirror
One of the best Star Trek: TNG books ever.
4, Catherynne M. Valente: The Orphan’s Tales: In the Night Garden and Catherynne M. Valente: The Orphan’s Tales: In the Cities of Coin and Spice
A wonderful duology of intertvined tales.
5, Kris Nelscott: Smoke-Filled Rooms
Mystery set in the turbulent days in Chicago 1968.
6, Terry Pratchett: Witches Abroad
Of course at least one Pratchett book needs to be on this list.
7, Hannu Rajaniemi: The Quantum Thief
A unique science fiction book.
8, Judith Tarr: Lord of the Two Lands
A mystery with Alexander the Great as one of the main characters.
9, Kara Dalkey: Euryale
Another mystery set in the ancient world, but in Rome this time.
10, Lois McMaster Bujold: Penric’s Demon
Bujold’s new novella set in her rich fantasy world.
