I know I only did 10 books for 2018 but when it came to this year I found that while deciding on the first half dozen was easy enough, filling out the last few slots proved more difficult. After a lot of back and forth on my part, I decided I would bump it up to 15.
Similar to last year, the books are organised by the order I read them, with none being ranked above the others, and links to my reviews are beneath each image.
A wonderful read; vibrant, imaginative and truly a work of art.
A fun action-packed romp, with a fresh view on some fantasy tropes and some great dialogue along the way.
Not for the faint of heart but offers an abundance of riches.
Part mystery and part coming-of-age, wrapped in the trappings of a fantasy novel.
A bittersweet novel, recalling the loves and losses of childhood in the best of ways.
It plays with a lot of tropes common to comic books, hugely entertaining.
Full of fantasy action, complemented by a protagonist who is equal parts vulnerable, sarcastic and consumed with revenge.
A great read with a strong near future cyber-punk flavour.
Manages multiple plot-lines and points of view with ease.
While the novel has a relatively slow build, sticking with it is recommended and rewarding.
A marvelous expansion of the author’s existing world.
Both a great introduction to this world and a novella that could easily be consumed in a couple of hours.
As hard, brutal and frequently funny as it’s predecessor.
Hopefully I’ll have the remainder of those reviews written and posted soon.
