Because I had so many A- books on the 2016 list, I'm not going to expound too much today but rather list them (in alphabetical order by series), and you can look them up if you feel led to do so. Suffice it to say that I would most definitely recommend that you put at least a few of these on your TBR pile, if you haven't read them already.
Without further ado, the A- list:
|Title||Author||Series (if applicable)|
|Charlotte's Story||Laura Benedict||a Bliss House novel|
|A Touch of TNT||LJ Charles||Everly Gray Adventures (#2)|
|To Touch a Thief||LJ Charles||Everly Gray Adventures (#2.5)|
|A Touch of the Past||LJ Charles||Everly Gray Adventures (#3)|
|The Celtic Dagger||Jill Paterson||Fitzjohn Mysteries (#1)|
|Murder on the Hill||Kennedy Chase||Harley Hill (#1)|
|Murder on the Page||Kennedy Chase||Harley Hill (#2)|
|Hot Property||Susanne O'Leary||Kerry Romance Series (#1)|
|Killer Cupcakes||Leighann Dobbs||Lexy Baker Cozy Mysteries (#1)|
|Dying for Danish||Leighann Dobbs||Lexy Baker Cozy Mysteries (#2)|
|Lovers at Heart||Melissa Foster||Love in Bloom-The Bradens (#1)|
|Evensong||Krista Walsh||Meratis Trilogy (#1)|
|Eventide||Krista Walsh||Meratis Trilogy (#2)|
|Evenlight||Krista Walsh||Meratis Trilogy (#3)|
|The Baron and the Bluestocking||GG Vandagriff||Six Rogues and Their Ladies (#6)|
|Welcome to Paradise||Rosalind James||The Kincaids Series|
|Place Your Betts||Katie Graykowski||The Marilyns (#1)|
|Winters Heat||Cristin Harber||Titan Series (#1)|
|Don't Marry Thomas Clark||Celia Hayes|
|Gone Girl||Gillian Flynn|
|Saving Saffron Sweeting||Pauline Wiles|
|There Are No Men||Carol Maloney Scott|
I will say that I'm really glad I finally read Gone Girl, after having been encouraged to do so by a great number of fellow readers. Probably won't see the movie because I'm not sure I can get my head wrapped around the whole thing as playing out in front of me in real time. But still. An excellent read. If you haven't gone there...well, go there. It's worth it.
I mentioned in the B+ post the pair of trilogies by Krista Walsh about the author who finds himself transported into his created world. The Meratis Trilogy mentioned above is the beginning of that series, and I liked it just a little bit better than its sister Cadis Trilogy simply for the premise and how Walsh so deftly handled the back-and-forth, consequences of our actions aspect. If you like inter-dimensional travel and the whole good-versus-evil fantasy kind of stuff, you might like these.
So, let's talk books. Has anyone read any of my A- listers? If so, what did you think? Are there any you've read that might land in this category that you'd recommend? You know I'm always looking for something to read.
Until next time, you know what to do. It's good for you!
