the Little Red Reviewer

come on, everybody’s doin’ it.

Posted on: December 27, 2010

Behold!  LRR’s end of year listy thing!  (Yay peer pressure!)

Favorite book of 2010: Zoo City by Lauren Beukes.  Words can not describe how much I loved this book. It turned me into a blabbering fangirl.

Favorite newly discovered author of 2010Joe Abercrombie.  Okay, so his First Law trilogy was published before 2010, but I read, no, I devoured this trilogy during the second half of 2010.  this is the uncut good shit.

Best twist in a SF/F novel:  Mark Hodder’s Springheeled Jack. If you’ve read it you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t read it,  you still have a few days of vacation left, so what are you waiting for?

Favorite newly discovered character is a  Big ole tie between:  Joe Abercrombie’s Sand dan Glotka, Lauren Beukes’ Zinzi December, and Mike Resnick’s Doc Holliday. Me, have a weakness for tragic characters? no way!

Favorite graphic novel Rising Stars by J. Michael Strazcynski.  It’s not new, but it was new to me.

Favorite Manga:  Nana, by Ai Yazawa.  I love Shojo.  Who knew?

Book most looking forward to in 2011: Wise Man’s Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss

what were your favorites for 2011?

I’ll be doing mine in a few days. It is a post I look forward to each and every year.

You have some interesting categories. I like the ‘newly discovered character’ category and the ‘best twist in a sf/f novel’ one as well. I have yet to read any of these books that you mention but, other than Zoo City, I’ve at least heard of them all.

I promised a friend of mine that I would read Name of the Wind before too terribly long. It was his favorite read this past year and he really wants me to be a part of this trilogy with him. And, since he is a dear friend, reading what I expect will be a damn good book is the least I can do for him.

I’ll be putting my favourite books and a review of the year up later this week, or possibly New Years Day.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
