I haven’t managed a lot of reading this year, although I have helped out with a few beta projects which have either just come out or will be in early 2021, so my hands have been quite full. Of the small number of books I did get around to, I thought it would be great to do a top 5 so you can add them to you To-Be-Read piles. Some of the books I have reviewed in more detail over the course of the year, and you can take a look here.
5) Annabelle – Elexis Bell
This small but mighty story will have you gripped from start to finish. Some hero’s wear capes, while others choose long dresses and carry a killer parasol, but sometimes the line between hero and villain become blurred.
A young woman turned serial killer seeks justice in the Old American West.
4) The Burns Fire – N.M. Thorn
An interesting first glimpse into a world of myths and legends intertwined with our own reality. Zane Burns is in for a surprise when he is thrown into the middle of a murder investigation involving dark forces and the Russian Mob. If only his sidekick wasn’t such a pain in the…
If you like a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat Urban Fantasy adventure with dynamic characters, intense action and breathtaking suspense, then you’ll love this series starter.
3) The Mirror Souls – Julia Scott
This book was a real surprise to me, I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did, but I consumed it in two days straight! An easy and enjoyable read from the get-go with a great cast that I can’t wait to catch up with in book 2, The Anahata Divide.
A fast-paced young adult novel that blends sci-fi (without being too heavy), near future dystopia (without being too stark and depressing) and soulmate romance.
2) Agent Undone – Cassidy Reyne
If you enjoy a romantic suspense novel, you will be crying out for more of Agent Carter Hollis. An easy boy-meets girl-and-they-fall-in-love story is complicated by ghosts of the past and a shed load of action. An emotional rollercoaster for sure!
Women were like shot glasses lined up on a bar — until her.
1) Dance of Despair – Kara S. Weaver
Book 2 in the Ilvannian Chronicles is, somehow, even better than Crown of Conspiracy. This time around we follow the POV of two characters, which only adds to the suspense and drama that you feel as though you are transported into the pages and witnessing them first hand.
In the last book we were left with a big cliffhanger. I won’t say what happens other than, expect the unexpected.
Real betrayal never comes from enemies.
If you have already read the books on this list, let me know what you thought in the comments. If not, happy reading!
