Great list! You should add The Doomsday Vault by Steven Harper. I read it last month & I enjoyed it a lot – really entertaining 😀 Can’t wait for the sequel! From the books on your list I’ve read only the books 1-3 from the Parasol Protectorate & I’m currently reading book 4. Although all fun – I think that Soulless was definitely the best, because it wasn’t only fun – it was great. The rest of the books on your list are on my tbr list 🙂 Happy reading!
Thanks! The Doomsday Vault will be added to the list. I downloaded an excerpt of Soulless and liked it. I think I’ll be buying that one soon. I’ve heard the series was interesting.
