    Great list and kudos for assembling such detail. I’ll be interested to learn what you thought of listening to HILD. I have been eyeing the audio book myself, but have this inordinate fear of being bored, even though reviews of the written book indicate the opposite.

    Thanks for so many good recommendations this past year. I look forward to what comes next.

  2. I LOVED your list … and not only because our tastes coincide on so many of these books (also, thank you for MissB’s mention); it’s so succinct and yet your sensibility comes through so beautifully! Wishing you a great new reading year! You make me want to read all of Teri Wilson too; and listen to audiobooks I wouldn’t normally try. 🙂

  3. P. S. Am reading SWEET DISORDER now and even from chpt. 1 (because I haven’t gotten very far, because I’m rereading Duran’s DUKE OF SHADOWS because reasons), I love it. And I loved IN FOR A PENNY; it was #bathtubreading for me, one of the highlights of my bathtubreading year.

      • I think for me it’s just some kind of bizarro existential book angst: unexplained feelings of book dread … also, like you, what if I hate it? Or it tires me out? Or, embarrassing I know, what if it’s long? Which is why I tend to read category romance …
