#AMonthofFaves – most memorable books of the year



I’m taking part in A Month of Favorites (hosted by Traveling with TEstella’s Revenge, and GirlXOXO) this December

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?
