List of Lists

2011 has been kind to Prince of Thorns!

Below are the 27 'Best of 2011' lists that I know of featuring Prince of Thorns (assembled in chronological order of publication). And also 12 'Best of 2012' lists, 7 'Best of 2013' lists, 4 'Best of 2014' lists, and 1 'Best of 2015' list!

The two main reasons for assembling this list of lists are:

i) A thank you to the reviewers in question. It's a labour of love maintaining a book blog.

ii) You're probably here because you liked Prince of Thorns. These reviewers (or in one case, these 20,000+ voters) appear to share your taste in one book, perhaps you will enjoy the other books on their lists.

  1. My pleasure, Mark :) Thank you for writing such a fantastic book. Here's to hoping King of Thorns will be on my 'Best of 2012' list :)

    1. it wasn't :( but you did give it a good review :) and it was on more 'Best of' lists than Prince of Thorns was :D

  2. Quite a list of lists! All we need now is for someone to assemble a list of lists of lists.

  3. Large Hearted Boy does a massive lists of lists of lists in Dec and Jan, lists of favorite books, favorite songs, favorite albums. the guy is a listing machine!

  4. Hey Mark, I nominated you for a Liebster Award! No, this is not spam. I really did nominate you. ;)

    1. Thanks! 'I love you' has always sounded a little dirty to me in German ...

      My blog traffic is a matter of record

      Tweeted under the title "Confessions of a half-hearted blogger" ... which about sums it up :)
