To be honest, it seems I had a pretty bad book year. Rating wise, my average rating is 2.9! Now that is bad. These days I even try to avoid those ok books, but I guess I finished a lot of them this year. Sigh.
I have read 265 books this year, 25 of those were 4 star books....
Taking a quick look at the list and trying to remember ;) I might miss quite a few
8 audio books
14 novella/short story
1 graphic novel
And now to Best of
Best Historical Romance
I love HR, I read them for the fun of it, but even though I really like them, they seldom get that 4, because I am very cruel. Therefore I was very surprised when this one got a 4 this year. It was just that good.
This is book 2 in a series, and well I have suffered from book 2 syndrome a lot. But here, wow. Such a good book. Even better than book 1! I was impressed. That is how a series should evolve.
I usually do not do this, but when looking through GR and checking my reviews...well, I used the word intense a lot. I mean A LOT! Another series that just keeps getting better.
I like how she writes, I liked the darkness of it all, and the world created. Great YA.
This one has not been translated, a shame really.
This was one of those where it did take me a while to warm up to the series- But this one was excellent and one of those I need to pee, but F IT! I have to finish this book.
Ok, so it might be one of two steampunk books I read this year, and it was fantasy too, but it has to be on this list. Also BEST sidekick cat ever!
Best Er tic romance
I seldom read this since I skim already in contemporary romance, but I read it, and damn, it was good! It was better than the contemporary romance I read this year. It gets both prizes.
Best Historical Fiction/Horror
This one actually gave me the chills. After having finished it I had to look out the window so no one was watching me. Such a claustrophobic feeling.
How to be a young woman in a country where women are worth nothing. A powerful story.
And last, Best Memoir *coughs*
My cheat genre pick ;)
And last a shout out to
