After considerable thought I would like to highlight the following 10 books as my personal favourites:
Two books by William McIlvanney in the Laidlaw Trilogy (Laidlaw and The Papers of Tony Veitch) the only ones I’ve read so far.
Three books in Peter’s May Lewis Trilogy (The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man and The Chessmen)
Police by Jo Nesbo. Translated by Don Bartlett
Norwegian by Night by Derek B Miller
Last Will by Liza Marklund. Translated by Neil Smith
La neblina del ayer by Leonardo Padura. English title: Havana Fever
The Deep Dark Sleep by Craig Russell
And three honourable mentions:
Cold Hearts by Gunnar Staalesen. Translated by Don Bartlett
Capture by Roger Smith
Hard Bite by Anonymous-9

Oh dear…I’ve only read one of these…which means there’s lots more titles to add to my wishlist. Just what I need 🙂 Glad you had such an enjoyable year of reading though
Thank you Bernadette, I also have lots of books to pick up from your 104 books read this year, since I’ve probaly read only but a few. All the best.
José Ignacio – You do have a great list here. And you’ve reminded me of a few I’ve meant to read and haven’t. Good to know it was a good reading year for you.
Thank you Margot for your kind words.
I’m in complete agreement that McIlvanney and May deserve the top slots. I’ve only read the first of the ‘Laidlaw’ series so far, but looking forward to reading the other two in the next few months. Sadly, I’ve read all of the May’s including the new one, so at least a year to wait for another!
Thank you FictionFan, but I’m sure you’ll find some excellent books to read in this New Year
Jose Ignacio: An interesting assembly of books. I have not read any of them. I am currently reading Bat by Jo Nesbo and really enjoying the book.
Glad to hear that Bill. I look forward to your review.
