Favorite Books of 2010

  • Nov 27, 2010
These are my favorites from 2010. 
1
The Bishop (The Patrick Bowers Files, Book 4)
Fourth book in the Patrick Bower's series. Absolutely excellent serial killer novel. Original and thought provoking.
See the full review, "James Has Once Again Set An Impossibly High Standard".
2
Broken: A Novel
A great drama of a beautiful woman from a wealthy family, that due to traumatic events and poor choices eventually ended up a call girl. The story starts at the point that she's hiding and trying to start a new life after shooting one of her clients.
See the full review, "Great Story That's Earned Thrasher a New Fan".
3
Frenzy (Dreamhouse Kings)
The final book in the YA Dreamhouse King series. It's a phenomenal conclusion to an awesome time travel series.
See the full review, "Fantastic Finish to a Remarkable Series".
4
Nightmare
A great book that takes a look at paranormal activities. I wouldn't called it scary, but it is a bit disturbing at time.
See the full review, "Great Suspense With Some Nice Thrills And Chills".
5
They Almost Always Come Home
A wonderful drama with a great sense of humor. Libby is planning to divorce her husband, but when he doesn't come home from a trip, she doesn't know what is worse, the possibility that he might be dead or that he's left her before she could leave him.
See the full review, "Serious Story With A Sense of Humor".
6
The Clouds Roll Away (Raleigh Harmon)
This is the third book featuring FBI agent Raleigh Harmon. Giorello has a beautiful writing style and has created Raleigh to be a believable and sympathetic character. I love this series and am very much looking forward to the next book.
See the full review, "The Perfect Combination of Evil and Grace".
7
Fatal Convictions
Singer writes the best legal dramas in the Christian market. He tackles controversial issues with style and grace. This time he paired a Christian pastor/lawyer defending a prominent Imam accused of an honor killing.
See the full review, "Thought Provoking and Highly Entertaining".
8
konig's fire
It's very dark, speculative work, set during WWII. It features a chemist who was conscripted to fight as a German ally. Fearful, he pretends to agree with the Nazis until finally he is assigned to a mine where his job is to make the oven burn hotter in order to make sure the people burned alive are completely disintegrated.
9
Nightshade (Discarded Heroes Series, Book 1)
I'm not a huge romantic suspense reader, but this one was excellent. It's the first book in the Discarded Heroes series which follows a group of former service men suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I usually don't care much for romance, but this one kept me up until 3:00am to find out if and how the guy got the girl.
See the full review, "All Around Fantastic Story".
10
So Cold the River
This was a wonderfully dark book with some great flash back scenes. I loved Koryta's style and completely enjoyed being swept into a story that was griping, intense, and a bit unsettling.
See the full review, "Dark Plot and Chilling Characters--Great Combination".

Here's the new badge I created based on the thread too: http://www.lunch.com/cafelibri/badges/2010_R...hoice-22301-74-1-1.html

Let me know if you have trouble receiving it. The badges have been a little wonky as of late, lol!

Thanks Sheri. I have a review written for Konig's Fire that I'm waiting to post on Amazon. It needs to post to the main site I review for first. I think it might be easier to 'Lunch' it after posting it to Amazon. It looks a little involved to add it here. Thanks Adrianna! It was a great year for books.

I'm having a lot of problems posting to lists this week...already bombed on my last try so let me try one more time. When you search for a book or other product, and you get the message that it isn't already on Lunch (can't be found, whatever the language is), that is the page where you should see the "Add it to Lunch" button.

Thank you! Where is the 'Add it to Lunch' feature? Which page is it located on?
 
November 29, 2010
Hey MeliWillis, you got your list done! Fantastic!
 
November 28, 2010
Great list! If you can't find a topic on here, feel free to add it by selecting the blue "Add it to Lunch" feature and filling out all the info. If you need any help, feel free to let me know :)

A little bit about me. I read primarily Christian fiction. My favorites are suspense, with supernatural elements always being a plus. I most enjoy books that will keep me thinking well after I'm done … more
