Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get Around To


Hello and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017.

Last year, I dropped the ball on this meme, and really all memes, but I thought I’d revive at least this one. I ended up with just nine books for this meme, not because I read everything else released last year, but because these books are the only ones I regret missing out on.

Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Recent Reads

The Good Guy

Dean Koontz is not a new author, he has been writing consistently since the late 1970s. It is just that I have not really registered him on ...

Moscow Rules


I am a big fan of thrillers, in particular if there is any serialization involved (a single character appearing in multiple novels - and there is a particular order in which the books should ideally be read).
