"I'm hopeless at rating things.
I adored both Keri Arthur Riley Jensen series books (sigh - Quinn), JR Ward's The Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. And C.E Murphy's Coyote Dreams was a fantastic installment to The Walker Papers. Can't wait to read the next books in all these series.
Jim Butcher's Storm Front was a great first book in a series, so want to continue with those.
I was drawn into Twilight and The Host.
And I always love books by Barbara Hannay and Marion Lennox.
I laugh with Janet Evanovich, and cringed (as it was crime) with Lisa Gardner and Kathy Reichs. I admire the artwork of Frank Miller. And if you want a very very hot read with poetic language, it's Denise Rossetti.
Then there's the children's books - Neil Gaiman is a great author. Caroline is creepy and I know I would have loved that as a kid.
See I'm hopeless. I can't make up my mind. :)
If I had to choose I will go for JR Ward - it has adventure, action, romance, and gorgeous vampires with emotional depth and because it's the series I read the most this year."
