Looking back at my favorite reads from this year I have to say I’m rather surprised. Most of the books on that special shelf were from Fantasy genre and now I’ve got surprisingly many Sci-Fi novels. And it seems I’ve discovered a new love for cozy mysteries, especially by one author :D.
I wanted to make this list a “top-something” list (and surprisingly I’ve got 10 books to present, so it might’ve worked), but I can’t decide on the order, so instead I’ll just show off the few super-awesome books that really grabbed me this year and only this year – no re-reads.
A bit of a warning – this post is all about positive thoughts! There will be no whining, complaining, etc 😉
An adorable and lovely graphic novel without words and yet with a complete story and cute characters. I still want plushies of both characters! I should learn to sew…
It started with a movie… then I read the book and it was even better! I loved the humor, I loved the science and I loved Mark Watney. I need a hard copy of this book to re-read it :D.
First volume that gives you a taste of things to come and what a taste it is. The graphic is cute, the plot is interesting and the characters are shown nicely. I already bought the whole series!
This and pretty much every other book I’ve read by this author made me fall for cozy mysteries this year. It’s funny, it’s cute and it has specific kind of romance that was rather adorable.
Great and original format of the story, interesting plot, fantastic plot twists and great characters. What else would you need to enjoy a good book? Plus two new authors to meet with plenty of other good stories to offer – I’ve read some already.
A new take on zombie-like creatures with a strong female heroine on the lead and some unexpected twists. A pretty good start if you’d ask me, I’d love to read more of this story.
Book filled with curious characters a fantastic mystery that feels a bit like StarGate, all kept in a steady pace that will not let you get bored. Add few plot twists and you’re in for a treat.
Oh, look! A vampire novel with young heroine and no romance! The plot was interesting, characters behaviors were consistent and somewhat twisted. I loved it! I want more 😀
Simply WOW! I really didn’t expect that when I’ve started this book. All the nerdiness from the 80’s and 90’s, a great plot, likable character and fantastically created world. Awesome!
Wonderful world building, fantastic characters, heart gripping plot twists and so many feelings! The first book was good, but this one was great! It’s been a while since I’ve read such good fantasy book.
You can count all these books as my recommendations and if you already read them – let me know what you thought! I hope the new year will bring me some more great reads :).
