When I first set out to pick my top 10 books I didn't realize how hard that was going to be. See, 2010 was a big reading year for me. I left my 60+ hr a week career at the beginning of the year, and began filling my time with reading and more reading. Before, I had dabbled in the UF genre, reading Kresley Cole, JR Ward, Kim Harrison, Karen Marie Moning, and Vicki Pettersson but that was about it. So, when I actually started having time for reading I was shocked by how many great books there are out there...so I read and I read. I finished the year at about 130 books, and that's not including the ones I don't tell Goodreads about ;)
So, here are some of the highlights from this year as a reader: (in no particular order)
Disillusionists Series by Carolyn Crane
Downside Ghosts Series by Stacia Kane
Greywalker Series by Kat Richardson
Dreg City Series by Kelly Meding
Blood Singer Series by Cat Adams
Sirantha Jax Series by Ann Aguirre
Allie Beckstrom Series by Devon Monk
Dead, Undead, or Somewhere In Between by JA Saare
Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews
I'm also loving some of the new writers I've found including, Suzanne McLeod, Jeannie Holmes, Kaylana Price, and Colleen Houck. Can't wait for more from them.
Urban Fantasy keeps surprising me with it's changes and I can't imagine ever tiring of it. I'm so excited to see what happens in 2011. Hope you all had a great reading year too!
