This is a little late, but Kirkus released their list last Monday. What I love about this list is that it’s HUGE compared to everyone else’s; in related news, Kirkus has a huge review volume, so it’s pretty well guaranteed that there will be a super surprise or two.
The quick and dirty breakdown:
The list is 50 titles long.
24 either were on our original list or else we added them along the way.
2 were not on our list but were added after appearing on other year-end lists (Conviction and Most Dangerous)
And a whopping 24 were not on our list at all, and of those 24, nearly half weren’t even on our radar. Now that you’ve got the numbers, let’s look at the titles in category 3.
