Best Books of 2013

Below is a list in no particular order of the books published in 2013 that stood out for me. There are some notable absences, largely due to me simply not being able to read everything published this year in what was a very good year to be a reader. 2013 was probably the first year where I made an effort to read as much new release material as I could. As a result I was able to read 50 books that were published in 2013 (out of my 160+ books read in total throughout the year). Without further delay – here’s the cream of the crop (a mixed genre list):
The Thicket
THE THICKET by Joe R Lansdale (Mulholland) REVIEW
Who is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa?
WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CAPES OF HEROPA by Andrez Bergen (Perfect Edge) REVIEW
Zero at the Bone
ZERO AT THE BONE by David Whish-Wilson (Penguin) REVIEW
The Cambodian Book of the Dead
THE CAMBODIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD by Tom Vater (Exhibit A) REVIEW
The Baddest Ass (Billy Lafitte, #3)
THE BADDEST ASS by Anthony Neil Smith (Blasted Heath) REVIEW
Skinner
SKINNER by Charlie Huston (Mulholland) REVIEW
All The Wild Children: A noir memoir
ALL THE WILD CHILDREN by Josh Stallings (Snubnose Press) REVIEW
Point and Shoot
POINT AND SHOOT by Duane Swierczynski (Mulholland) REVIEW
Letters From a Murderer
