I enjoyed Where There’s a Will, book 4 in Stacy Gail's Bitterthorn, Texas series and Kansas City Secrets by Julie Miller (The Precinct #29).

I also enjoyed Archangel's Enigma, though I still have no plans to read the entire series. Stories with vampires just aren't my cup of tea even when by a favorite author.

I'm reading and enjoying shards of hope because I wasn't able to get it the first time.

Rock Hard! I have re-read it so many times this year and it was fun to see places mentioned during my NZ trip.
Anne Bishop's Vision in Silver, all of Ilona Andrews' new books, and I discovered Penny Reid this year. Have re-read the Knitting in the city series several times.

I'm reading " The Shadows" of the Black Dagger series from J.R.Ward but the German Version and here the original book is divided into two books why I have to wait for the second part and this makes me crazy !

Well, I have to say that I loved Rock Hard and Archangels Enigma! But my very favorite read of the year was Grace Draven's Radiance. I have the final Terry Pratchett sitting on my nightstand, but I can't bring myself to read it yet.

Happy holidays to you! May there be peace in the hearts of men.

I started the Guild Hunters series by you! I have not been a big fan of PNR or UF in the past, but I love your series and will go on to the Psy-Changeling when I'm finished it.

It also got me interested in Ilona Andrews, Kate Daniels series, which is also fabulous.

I also loved:
Without Words - Ellen O'Connell
Archer's Voice, Kyland and Grayson's Vow by Mia Sheridan (a fantastic new author for me)
Closer Than You Think - Karen Rose
Soaring - Kristin Ashley
Second Chance Summer - Jill Shalvis
It Started with a Scandal - Julie Anne Long

Ok, it's not a book from 2015 but I got to pre-order Allegiance of Honor from Barnes and Noble. Yay! I didn't realize we could pre-order so far in advance. Cover (cough, cough) not ready, but it will be nice to see it before the book comes out.

That made my end of 2015 into one big smile.

I have a feeling Allegiance will be on my 2016 list. :D

No doubt, my favorite read this year has been the Psy-Changeling series! I'm obsessed and have read 13 books since July. ADORE this series and can't wait to start Guild Hunter series!

Anonymous said...

Valerie StuckInBooks you must read the books of the Guild Hunter series as soon as possible, I guarantee: you will love them!!! I also start with Psy-Changeling series and I thought : The Guild Hunter series can't be as good as the Psy-Changeling series and because of this I hesitated to start with the Guild Hunter series.
But when I finally started reading the Guild Hunter series I just thought: I should have read it earlier! For me both series are so different and in their own way fantastic!
Read the Guild Hunter series and I hope you will unterstand then.

All of the Guild Hunter books I have read and reread multiple times. Michelle Sagaras Chronicles of Elantra series. Tamora Pierce Circle of Magic series and the Tortall multi-series. Jayne Castles Futuristic Ghost Hunter series I love the dust bunnies they add a special touch to the stories. The Many Amanda Quick and Jayne Krentz boks have been reread this year. JD Robb is another favorite I have reread all the series up to Devoted in Death. There are many more Nora Roberts! Yasmin Galenorn, Robert van Guliks Judge Dee, and many, many, more I am a bookaholic to the max. Happy New Year and blessings to all.
