  1. I have heard wonderful things about Redshirts, Ready Player One, and Wool Omnibus. Did you find them worthy? I love American Gods and reread it every few years. i was glad to see it on your list. I hope you enjoyed it greatly.

    • I did enjoy it greatly! I will have to read it again sometime, to catch all the little things I probably missed. The other 3 books are some of the best I’ve read!!

  2. that’s a very nice list. Loved “Redshirts” (go read it now, nrlymrtl! The audiobook version is pretty great – got the family through a long car trip), and really need to go grab “Ready Player One”, which I hear is good.

    “American Gods” is one of those I need to go back and revisit again – loved it the first time, though I’m sure there are plenty of new revelations to take in.

    • Redshirts and Ready Player One are both narrated by Wil Whaeton, so yeah, go now and listen to them! I think American Gods might be one of those that changes every time we read it, you know? It was awesome.

  3. I love people’s end of year lists. I’ve read a few on there – some many years ago like Wizard of Oz and Sherlock Holmes. Just reread A Christmas Carol and really enjoyed it. Still not read American Gods – sat waiting patiently. I’m gradually working my way through Neil Gaiman’s books and graphic novels. I’ve heard lots of good things about the Wool Omnibus so I’m definitely going to check that out. I take it you really enjoyed Mary Janice Davidson as you seem to have a few titles by that author – do you recommend?
    Lynn :D

    • Absolutely! The books on the list are all in a series. They are real palate cleansers for when I get bored or just need something to make me laugh and not worry so much. They are about a young woman who is suddenly transformed into the Queen of Vampires. They are a little romantic, naughty, weird, and very funny. She has a thing for shoes. I never would have thought I’d like them, but they are great. Each book has a good twist in the plot and I can read one in a couple days, if motivated. The very best part is that a friend lends them to me when she ‘s finished, so we can laugh about them together.
