New Index

Man, 2017 already. Just a few days ago, the Hotlist turned twelve years old. And with 524 book reviews thus far, I don't know how many interviews, and countless genre-related post as well as a lot of unrelated crap, I thought it was about time to update the index.

After all, even though I kept updating it every time I reviewed a new novel, the original post dated from 2010. It was high time to come up with a new one! And since this has been a popular request for years, each entry now comes with the score I gave as my final verdict. It was odd to realize that I wasn't always as demanding. . .

Here's what happened so far in case you missed it. . .;-)
