I took a look back at what I’ve read so far this year, and compiled this list of six books that I enjoyed the most. These are all books that I’ve rated 4 or 5 stars in GoodReads. I decided to divide them into a couple of subcategories. The images take you to the book’s GoodReads page.
Favorite Fantasy Books
Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
Wizards and vengeful spirits in modern day London. I have a weakness for wizard detectives, so this was right up my alley.
Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
This charming and witty, but also dark children’s story just swept me away and had me smiling for most of the book. I loved Barrie’s narrator voice.
Sorcery and Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
Charming adventure in magical Regency England, written in letter form. I loved Kate and the Marquis of Schofield!
Favorite Graphic Novels
Yotsuba 11 by Kiyohiko Azuma
Yotsuba never fails to make me laugh. I love reading about the little girl’s adventures amid the wonders of daily life.
