2010 I started keeping track of the books I read.
From that list the ones I would highly recommend are Nefertiti by Michelle Moran and Eleventh Guest by Brodie and Brock Thoene. The Eleventh Guest is actually a wonderfully series called the A.D. Chronicles that starts with First Light.
From my 2011 list I would recommend, The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch, The Centurion's Wife by Janette Oke, The Concubine's Daughter by Pai Kit Fai, The Damascus Way by Davis Bunn, The Help by Kathryn Stockett and 11/22/63 by Stephen King.
Finally, from this year's list I have loved, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker.
