I’ve already read so many good books this year I could have easily made a list of at least 15 titles for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. 2014 is my year of Brandon Sanderson. If I keep going like this then I’ve read all his books within a year. Last week I read The Martian which was surprisingly hilarious and quickly became a new favorite of mine. Another surprise for me was Saga which is the BEST comic I’ve ever read (not that I read that many but there is nothing as epic out there as Saga). And another surprise was Red Rising because it’s SciFi but feels like Fantasy. Its wordbuilding is epic. The rest are books of series I already loved. Both BZRK and Daughter of Smoke and Bone got great endings to their series and Unbound + Cress are great additions to some of my favorite series.
