    1. Thank you! 😀

      I really don’t know how Sanderson does it! And every book is so beautifully written too! I really need to catch up on my Harry Dresden backlog before it gets any bigger!

    1. They are definitely one of my ‘comfort’ reads – they’re easy and I know what I’m getting, they’re quite fun, and they can be sandwiched between more lengthy reads! Having read so many I feel quite invested in completing them too!


    1. Hehe – just a bit!! I must say it is quite rare for me to read outside of fantasy so I’m surprised at how many crime fiction novels cropped up!

      I completely understand that… but once you get through your first of a super long chonky-book series – such as Sanderson – and you realise how phenomenal they are, you will be glad that there are so many sequels!! 😀


    1. I know – they’ve been released in fiarlyquick succession! They’re often on Kindle sale too which is why I’ve managed to snap so many up! 😀


    1. Oh he is so much fun! Extremely witty and quite silly – they are very much books that will put you in a good mood!

      I really rather enjoy how his characters’ monocles and pince-nez jump off their faces when they’re surprised too… 😂 It happens with alarming regularity!

    1. They’re very good! And she has written so many of books in the Commissario Brunetti series that she’s sure to stay in my ‘most read authors’ for a very long time!


    1. I still haven’t read the Codex Alera series! Though I do own the first book! – Oh!! You just made me realise that I’ve also read The Aeronaut’s Windlass too! Must update my top ten….. haha!

    1. Oh you definitely should! 😀 I really recommend starting with Canavan’s Black Magician Trilogy – it blew me away when I first read it. I am woefully behind on her latest series though…

  1. Some of these authors I didn’t realize had written so many books! I’ve never read Sanderson- or Butcher- although I’d like to try them. I did think the Aeronaut book sounded fun. 🙂

    I did like One Word kill but haven’t read the rest of that series yet.

    1. Oh you should definitely give him a try! I would start with the Mistborn series – The Final Empire is the first book in the series and the next two are in the same time period. 😀


    1. Oh I love them too – particularly the covers that look like wood cuts! And if you like or want to try urban fantasy, The Dresden Files is a great option! 😃


  2. P.G. Wodehouse!! Good Golly!! How great to see him make a Top Ten List!

    I don’t recognize many of the other authors, but then again, I’ve been away from the blogosphere for almost 3 years and the memory does tend to wander a bit.

    Your post looks lovely!

    1. Thank you so much 😀

      Aha! I almost saw your monocle spring out of its socket! I must confess that I’ve actually read two more of his books in the past two days!

      I have also been away for two years and can definitely attest to the wanderings of the mind… The number two, for example, seems significant for some reason.


  3. Oh Trudi Canavan! I have the first 4 books on my physical tbr of her long series (the one that consists of multiple trilogies and all) but I have yet to pick them up. Yet I think they’ll be right up my alley.
