14. Jane, Unlimited

By Kristin Cashore (442 pp)

I loved the Graceling books. Just talking about them makes me want to read them again. This is a non-Graceling book set in contemporary times and unfortunately, I did not love it. In the acknowledgments the author says the first draft of this was a choose your own adventure book. I am not a fan of choose your own adventure books. This book follows Jane through several different choices and it didn't totally work for me. The writing, characters, setting are all great. The story got a little too goofy for me.

13. City of Mirrors

By Justin Cronin (598 pp)

Finally finished this trilogy! It was excellent. You always wonder how an author is going to pull off ending an epic series and this one was just fine. Recommend.

12. The Twelve

By Justin Cronin (588 pp)

A reading frenzy going on here. I had a long weekend away and this book is easy to zoom through. More post-apocalyptic vampire-like creature end of civilization adventures. Book 3 has been sitting here since xmas 2016. Finally cracking it tonight.

11. The Passage

By Justin Cronin (766 pp)

I've had book 3 of this trilogy sitting on my shelf since Xmas 2016. I didn't intend to re-read the first two but I enjoyed The Passage TV series and couldn't remember details. I can't believe how fast I got back into it. Most of the commutes this week were hideous but bus ride went quick when I had this book with me. Military fiddles with vampire-like virus to make super soldiers. The plan goes wrong on every level and the rest of the book is surviving humans trying to keep surviving.

10. Tiamat's Wrath (Expanse #8)

By James S.A. Corey (531 pp)

These books are so good. This is one of my favorites. More battles in space with great characters and unexpected developments. I've been behind since Christmas of 2016 and it took me 3 weeks to catch up. Now I have to wait for book 9.
