My Favorite Reads of 2019

I finally put it together. Here are my ten favorite reads from 2019 with "Flowers Over the Inferno" by Ilaria Tuti being my #1 book of the year. They were, in not quite alphabetic order:

Gerry Boyle - RANDOM ACT
C.J. Box - WOLF PACK
G.M. Ford - HEAVY ON THE DEAD
Candice Fox - REDEMPTION POINT
Peter Lovesey - KILLING WITH CONFETTI
Victor Methos - THE HALLOWS
Louise Penny - A BETTER MAN
S.J. Rozan - PAPER SON
Ilaria Tuti - FLOWERS OVER THE INFERNO
Fred Vargas - THIS POISON WILL REMAIN


There is also my group of "Honorable Mentions," since the unwritten rules say you should only have ten favorite reads. They are:


Garry Disher - UNDER THE COLD BRIGHT LIGHTS
Allen Eskens - NOTHING ORE DANGEROUS
Charles Finch - THE VANISHING MAN
Candice Fox - CRIMSON LAKE and GONE BY MIDNIGHT
Wendy Hornsby - A BOUQUET OF RUE
Michael Robotham - GOOD GIRL, BAD GIRL
Gerry Spence - COURT OF LIES
Domingo Villar - WATER BLUE EYES
Jeri Westerson - TRAITOR'S CODEX


Happy Reading,
LJ

    1. Thanks, Margot. I didn't get nearly as much read as I'd have liked but it's fun to hit the good ones. I also love knowing there are other fans of Fred Vargas out there. :)
