Hey Little Thrifter says:

Loved hearing your top ten of the year! I totally agree on Debra Fowler and I think I originally picked up Valerie on your recommendation so thank you 🙂 I also read The Devil's End by her this year which was a ton of fun.

Cameron Chaney says:

Fantastic top ten! I haven’t read any of these, actually.

Javin T says:

I'm happy to know Night Bait made the list. Maybe Night Lust makes it to top 10 for 2020? Haha. Grimm Reaping is fun for sure and a good follow up to Grimm Memorials. Lets hear about Chas. Balun's Ninth & Hell Street? Maybe throw in a Ray Garton novel?

August Willman says:

I have never read Mirror but I recently got Charnel House with an amazing cover with a nude man with multiple arms breaking through a mirror, and cannot wait to read it. Awesome video, a lot of these are on my tbr pile! Happy 2020!

William Wilson says:

Regarding Demonic Color, the author (in actuality two sisters) were caught plagiarizing Dean Koontz's Phantoms word-for-word with that book (and another book) and he sued them.

Snow Cone72 says:

Books sound great. Thanks for the reccomedations. Have to check the used book store here for them.

The Book Dweller says:

Knocked it out of the park again

Great review, and as I said before I could not agree with you more on Grimm Reapings, AND Mirror! Recently finished it, do you mind if I review it too? Thought I'd ask first. I just ordered a copy of What's wrong with Valerie from Paperback Swap, looking forward to it. Keep up your awesome inspiration and reviews….Richard at RUN2HRR?

I just picked up the paperbacks The Other side and Sea Cliff online. I agree with you that the cover art is cool. So once I'm done reading them they get put into a shadow box.
