I noticed two funny things while going back through the books that I've read this year. The first was that of all the books I've read, only one was a Contemporary Romance. Next year I'm going to fix that with a Contemporary Romance Challenge. More on that later. The second is that majority of the books read in 2008 were not published in 2008. Is it a requirement that my most memorable reads of the year have been released this year? If so I'm going against the rules. Here are the books that I enjoyed most this year.
The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne - Historical Romance
Moon Called by Patricia Briggs - Urban Fantasy
The Sharing Knife (Beguilement & Legacy) by Lois McMaster Bujold - Fantasy Romance
The Rules of Seduction by Madeline Hunter - Historical Romance
The Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon - Science Fiction
Silent in the Grave & Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn - Mystery
Eyes of Crow by Jeri Smith-Ready - Fantasy Romance
The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery - Romance
Oh, and anything by Laura Kinsale!
