Is it Midnight now? Is it? Is it, Mr Man with the pre-emptive fireworks? No, it bloody ISN’T and I’m going to have to cope with terrified cats at Midnight, I’d like to enjoy the remainder of my evening before I get traumatised Sevvie clinging to my chest shaking like a leaf. He’s already under my chair.
I wish I’d made a list of all the books I’ve read, I’m sure I said I was going to do that this year, and I didn’t. It would help me remember what I particularly liked – and it’s only through reading other people’s posts that I remember “oh god! I read that!” And I didn’t do tags for them, either, so I can’t find ‘em.
However – I did particularly like:
The Filly by Mark Probst
Gadarene by CB Potts and Tina Anderson
In Bear Country II-Barbary Coast by Kiernan Kelly
The Taos Truth Game by Earl Ganz
The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan
Only Words by Tina Anderson & Caroline Monaco(illus.)
all of the Hobb Trilogies
The Watchmen by Alan Moore
Vienna Dolorosa by Mykola Diemtiuk
Captain’s Surrender by Alex Beecroft
The Erotic Etudes-Opus VI by E.L. van Hine
The Alienist by Caleb Carr
Mr Page and Mr Clive by Neil Bartlett
A Perfect Waiter by Alain Claude Sulzer
The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie
Before They are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie
Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie.
It’s hard to find a favourite. Probably The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan because it breaks so many “rules” and is bloody good and Only Words by CB Potts and Tina Monaco because. GUH. it ripped my heart out and stamped all over it.
Books that disappointed: The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke. And many others that made me go meh.
Oh and I’m thrilled that Standish made the lovely Jessewave’s top ten favourite books she’d read. I’m particularly pleased because she found it darker than she normally likes but still I made the cut, despite her reading 100s in a year. *beams*© Copyright 2008 Erastes, All rights Reserved.
