Today’s topic is such fun!
The Most Unique or Most Memorable Book(s) Read This Year – not necessarily your favorite book because it could be memorable for how bad or how much you liked or disliked the characters.
Beauty is a Wound – Eka Kurniawan (my thoughts)
For being a very weird yet wonderful tome of a book that takes the reader through the major events in Indonesia’s history and also weaving in the supernatural, a family saga, and also, that cover (because it doesn’t have the back of an Asian woman or a fan or something else that always is used to symbolize ‘oriental’ or ‘exotic’)
Sharaz-De – Sergio Toppi
For its breathtakingly beautiful illustrations and his genius use of white space (my thoughts)
Ms Marvel Volumes 1 to 3 – G Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona
For Kamala Khan
Showa: A History of Japan – Shigeru Mizuki
For making me wish I could put this in my history teacher’s hands when I was a teenager
Sorcerer to the Crown – Zen Cho (my thoughts)
For diversity in fantasy.
Fates and Furies – Lauren Groff
For the “ARGH!” and then the “WHATTTT??????”
What were some of your memorable reads of the year?
