For Something Old, Something New, and All Things Wonderful –

Best of 2018 Lists Continue.

It’s wonderful to look past, over the year, in books I mean, and remember all the stories, authors, narrators, and artists that have crossed my computer and Kindle as well as those of all the reviewers here this year.  They have taken Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words across galaxies and back into time.  These authors have brought their own twist to every known romantic trope and created some new ones for contemporary stories, paranormal love affairs, and supernatural romances.

They’ve made us cry with shared pain, bent over in laughter at situations and dialogs we understood and connected with, and stories that suffused us with  warmth and love and a need to hug our readers close as a way not to let those characters and their lives go, not yet.

So here are some more of our lists of stories that have risen from a very high group this year.

From another of our long time reviewers, Barb our Zany Old Lady.
