Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite Books Released In the Last Ten Years

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday – this week’s theme is Favourite Books Released In The Last Ten Years, according to the prompts page the idea is to have one per year… I didn’t start blogging until 2017, and I didn’t keep great records of my reading before then, Goodreads was certainly not regularly updated, so I wasn’t sure how well I’d do with this. I certainly didn’t read them all the year they were released, and I has a little help from some ‘Best Of Year’ lists but I’m surprised how close I managed to get to one a year between 2010 and now!

I’ve intentionally not included more than one book from any series, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think other books in the series aren’t worth mentioning, just that you might find a list made up solely of Robert Galbraith and James Oswald a little dull….

Favourite Books Released In the Last Ten Years

2011 – Rivers of LondonBen Aaronovitch

The first in the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch introduced us to Peter Grant and DCI Nightingale and the wonderful world of magical Britain and the chaos that seems to follow Peter around.


2012 – Natural CausesJames Oswald

Magic and crime cross paths again in this first novel in the Detective McLean series from James Oswald. I stumbled across this accidentally when I needed to use up a credit on Audible – James is now on my auto-buy list


2013 – The Cuckoo’s CallingRobert Galbraith

How I love Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, they make such a brilliant double act and I love following their adventures.

My Review


2014 – The One Plus OneJojo Moyes

I must confess when I read this one I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it, I don’t think of myself as much of a fan of “chick lit” not meaning to disparage it in anyway it’s just not very me. I did love this however

My Review


2016 – The Princess DiaristCarrie Fisher

I’m a huge Star Wars fan and this provided such a unique insight into life as part of one of the biggest franchises in history.

My Review


2017 – Gilded CageVic James

Gilded Cage is the beginning of the Dark Gifts trilogy and what a trilogy it was! Vic creates a wonderful world and a plot filled with twists and turns that will have you experiencing every emotion going!

My Review


2017 – One Of Us Is LyingKaren M. McManus

One Of Us Is Lying I think was my first trip back into young adult mystery / thrillers and what a book it was! I was a bit worried about the sequel but having recently read the blurb I’m now really looking forward to it!


2017 – The Cost Of LivingRachel Ward

This is at the cosy crime end of the spectrum and not my usual end of the crime scale but Rachel creates such wonderful characters in Ant and Bea it’s impossible not to enjoy it.

My Review


2018 – EverlessSara Holland

I have repeated raved about this book repeatedly and I will do it once again, I loved the land Sara created in Sempera, Jules was such a wonderful central character and I although the duology is complete I’d love it if Sara revisited the world one day.

My Review


2019 – A Good Girl’s Guide To MurderHolly Jackson

I only read this book last weekend but I can already tell you this will feature on any best of 2019 post I write this year, it’s amazing!

    I really liked One of Us is Lying, though I have to admit I’m still apprehensive about the sequel (Especially as I didn’t enjoy Two Can Keep a Secret!). Also loved A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder- it was so good and I’m so proud of myself for guessing half the outcome!
