A Gentleman and a Scholar (Tales of the Captain Duke #3) is NOW AVAILABLE!

Best of 2016 – Rebecca Diem’s Recommended Reads

In between all the writing and touring and tweeting, I actually managed to make more time to read this year! As per usual, I am terrible at keeping track of the exact number, but I’d say it averages out to 3-4 per month, and more when I find a series I love.

So, while I begin my winter writing season and the rest of you wait for Book #4 of the Tales of the Captain Duke, I wanted to share some of my favourite reads of 2016. Books that captured my imagination and sent me scrambling to find the author on Twitter. Or, actually, a few I met on Twitter, who sent me scrambling to the bookstore find everything they’ve ever written.

I’m pleased to present my Best of 2016!*
