OK — Give me a few of your fave 2010 releases. I’ve left many out. Seems that I trended more toward YA this year. Not sure why.

But send me your faves!

Hi, Diana, well, of course, I’m going to suggest Haunted Honeymoon and Dot gave it a very nice review here. I raced through Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts books and I am jonesing to read Carolyn Crane’s The Disillustionists books.

Diana McCabe - November 20, 2010

I agree. I just now added Dot’s list! And HAUNTED HONEYMOON is on it. (For some reason my link button is formatting oddly so it’s not showing up in red. But it links back to Dot’s review! Thanks for posting. We should do an author Q&A with you when you have time!

Some of my top ten would be Kalayna Price’s Grave Witch; J.K. Saare’s Dead, Undead or Somewhere Inbetween; Meljean Brook’s The Iron Duke; Elle Jasper’s Afterlight; and Kresley Cole’s Demon from the Dark.

Diana McCabe - November 20, 2010

You should tell me more about these books. I think the only one I’ve read on your list is Kresley Cole. (I know you don’t wanna do book pics little sis but — ahem — I could condense your thots on ’em …. after all, that’s what I do for a living! Just teasing you!)
