Top 10 Reads of 2016

2016 continued another year where audiobooks constitute 95% of the books I complete. This is tough when some of my favorite indie authors haven’t adapted their books to that format, but I’m seeing that trending upward. For my award winners in years past: 2015 | 2014 | 2013 1.

Top Ten Reads of 2015

#10 – Breakers by Edward W. Robertson (Review – US – Audible (Omnibus .5-3) – UK) My new favorite scifi/post-apocalyptic franchise keeps packing quality character relationships with a fresh apocalyptic adventure. The first three books are free, and the first 3.5 books are one credit on Audible. The narration is top-of-the-line produced by R.C.
