Decade 2010-2020 Memorable Reads


The time has come to close out the decade 2010-2020 with some of my most memorable reads.  This is hardly an exhaustive list.  I'm happy to say there was a wealth of wonderful books by excellent authors.  However, these were both the first books of which I thought and the books whose stories made a lasting impression on me.  The link to my review of each book can be found in the column on the right under the section of the title above.  I can't wait to see what this new decade has in store.  ENJOY!

  1. You have such excellent reads here! There are about half a dozen (Vargas, Penny, McPherson, Adams, Bolton, Cleeves) that I think are exceptional, too. There are definitely some books like that that stay with you over time, aren't there?

    1. Thank you, Margot. I do wonder, though, about authors who only write one book, often to excellent reviews, and not another. Jordan Harper and Ellen Horan are examples. I keep checking/hoping, but there's no sign of another book. John Burley wrote four and, I assume, wasn't picked up to write more. I do see that Paul Adam wrote a third in the Cremona Mysteries series and it came out in 2019. Now I'm off to buy a copy.
