Books and stories I enjoyed in 2013

BOOK_by_FotunaI was inspired by Gail Carriger to do a post about what I enjoyed in 2013. This will be a mix of short stories, books and comics I enjoyed last year. Since I didn’t start this blog til September last year, I will draw on my goodreads reviews as well as the posts here.

As I said in an earlier post I read 87 books last year and GoodReads says I read 151 things all together, so I had plenty to choose from. I have decided that if I only read the newest book in the series this year, I might still recommend the series because I love long series. The reads are in no particular order.

25 Urban Fantasy Books that I recommend

25urbanfantasyEarlier in the week I listened to Galactic Suburbia episode 30 & read Tansy Rayner Roberts’ post “25 Urban Fantasies! (or: The Angry Trousers Treatise)“. This inspired me to make my own list. I didn’t quite agree with Tansy on what urban fantasy list so I made my own post discussing it. My list has a lot of Angry Trousers, but there are also a lot of books that break that trope on the list or don’t even come near it. I like angry trousers protagonists but I also like all kinds of other protagonists. Most of my list is fairly new books with only a few books written before 1990 on there, because I mostly read things available in ebook format. And I didn’t read before 1990, so unless someone recommend something older to me, I have not read it.
