2010 Mid-Year Review

We are half-way through 2010, and it seemed like a good time to take a look at the first half of the year. 2010 has seen 87 posts (averaging a post every 2.1 days). There have been 7 “information” posts (such as Top 15 of 2009), 1 on a product catalogue, 10 posts of “FREE FICTION,” and 2 interviews. There was one piece of non-fiction read and 53 fiction books: 2 roleplaying games, 1 magazine, 3 novellas, 3 anthologies, 3 omnibuses, 8 single author collections, and 37 novels. The genres have been pretty diverse as well, with 1 historical fiction, 2 mainstream fiction, 2 thriller, 3 mystery, 7 horror, 23 fantasy, and 34 science fiction (science fiction and fantasy are much closer when you take out the graphic novels I counted for them, putting them on exactly equal terms). There have been 26 2010 releases reviewed so far (in order of review, with stand out titles in bold):
