I ran out and bought The Witch’s Daughter as soon as I finished this one! I’ll also listen to any other audiobooks I find narrated by Marisa Calin. She did a wonderful job narrating this one.

  1. The only ones on your list that I’ve read so far are from author #1 and #2. I tried Shadow and Bone last year and couldn’t get past chapter three. It just wasn’t for me, but I hear it’s a fantastic series. I read Paula’s The Winter Witch earlier this year. It was okay. Once again, just something I don’t normally like. Sucks because I know they are great authors. 😦 Maybe I’ll retry Shadow and Bone or one of Paula’s other books to see if maybe it was more of when I read them.

    Great list! I’ll have to check out your #10! It looks like a fun read. πŸ˜€

  2. I loved Station Eleven, and it was beautifully written. I really wish there was a sequel though.
    The Girl on the Train was one of the books I could not put down this year. I think I read it in a day. Great list! πŸ™‚
