N.B.: This is a long post and it's been split up into four different sections - Favorite Reads (2 parts), Superlatives, and Honorary Mentions. I'll have a link to parts II - IV once they're up. This has been crossposted on my blog from BookLikes, so the formatting may be different than the one from last year (which was the first year of my "Favorite Reads" compilation.)
Yeah, it's that time again. I can't believe that it's been a little over a year since I did my first "Favorite Reads" post, but this is usually my favorite part of the year to showcase some of the titles that I enjoyed immensely and to showcase what I like to call "book superlatives" to name titles, authors, audiobooks, among other measures in my book perusals.
If you want to see my picks from last year, I've included links to them below just as a recap. Last year's picks were fun, and I really enjoyed doing the showcase. I may consider expanding this theme in the future, but I think for this year, the format will remain close to the same.
For this first post, the same rules apply for this particular section, and I'll repost them just to familiarize those of you who are new to it this year.
The first part of this will feature exclusively books that I’ve read this year that were also published this year.
This list is presented in random order while I note titles/authors, genres of the books, release dates, and a general reflection on why it made the list. This is only the first part of my favorite reads of the year, so it's a group of 20 books, these are just the first ten (in completely random order).
