The Best?

Booking Through Thursday

It’s a week or two later than you’d expect, and it may be almost a trite question, but … what were your favorite books from 2008?

(It’s an oldie but a goodie question for a reason, after all … because, who can’t use good book suggestions from time to time?)

The following list are my favorite books of 2008. Notice they're listed in order of the date I read them. If you click on the link from the titles, it'll take you to my reviews and bookcovers.

1. Feel the Heat by Kathryn Shay
2. Moving Target by Cheyenne McCray
3. No Regret by Shannon K Butcher
4. Killer Secret by Lora Leigh
5. Bodyguard of Lies by Robert Doherty *excellent book!*
6. Tangled Up In You by Rachel Gibson
7. Delicious by Susan Mallery
8. Force of Nature by Suzanne Brockmann *excellent book!*
9. All Through the Night by Suzanne Brockmann *excellent book*
10. Fire and Ice by Anne Stuart *excellent book!*
11. You've Got Male by Elizabeth Bevarly
12. Don't Say a Word by Barbara Freethy *excellent book!*
13. Kiss An Angel by SEP
14. Trial by Fire by Jo Davis
15. Bane Affair/As Risk by Alison Kent
16. Chain Reaction by Dee Davis
17. Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force *excellent book!*
18. Second Chance Family by Karina Bliss
19. Finally a Bride by Lisa Childs *excellent book!*
20. Into the Fire by Suzanne Brockmann *excellent book!*

But if I have to pick the BEST book of 2008, then for me I'll pick Don't Say a Word by Barbara Freethy! I love all my favorite authors, which is listed above. And I still do. But Don't Say a Word grabbed me and put me on edge. It was intriguing finding out the suspense of the book.

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

I'm going to have come back here and some time over the weekend. There are a number of books here that are new to me. I'll have to read your reviews and see why you loved them!

Oh -- you're reading Breath of Snow and Ashes! I don't know if I can stand waiting until fall for the new book.

Beth - I hope that when you do come back, that you will find something new for you to read :)
And yes, I am currently reading A Breath of Snow and Ashes (also reading it another book) and like you, I can't stand the wait until the fall to read the new book either. SO much have happen in A Breath of Snow and Ashes, that it take me either by surprise, shocking discovery and sadness too :) Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come and visit again :)

Gautami Triphathy - I hope you find something of interest to you :)

Alice - Hey! *grin*, yes you must read Tangled Up in You. I think you can read it as stand alone, even though the other books before it are connected.

Carolsnotebook - I hope that you find something of interest to you when you check my list. I Never find the times to read books I want to, too. So I make the times but it take some slowing to get there. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will stop by again :)

The Social Frog - Thanks for comments! I hope you find something of interest not just here, but other places too. There lot of blogger out there that may have the books you want to read :)

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I hope you have a good Thursday!
