Books I never really got started reading

"In his mind, he kept playing Sara's phone call over and over in his head...." -- Karin Slaughter, Blindsighted, p. 16.

Recommended by Sarah Weinman, no less. Here's her best of the decade list. I feel quite smug that I've already read and liked about half of these.

In the interest of full disclosure, however, you should mention that you disliked "Case Histories", the only book on both this and the EW(!) ten best of the decade list...

I would argue that it doesn't really belong on a list of crime novels.

Really?

It has a detective (who appears in two following books) a number of murders, a kidnapping, and the solving of the crime by the detective.

OK.
