Keeping with traditions, we will post our separate top 10 reads of 2023 lists throughout January. This year we’ll have 3 for you. Third and last up is Jen’s Top 10 Reads of 2023!
Today it’s our pleasure to host Alexander Darwin, author of The Combat Codes which is the first book in the The Combat Codes series, out on June 13, 2023, by Orbit!
Like last year, we once again decided to post 3 separate top 10 reads of 2021 lists instead of one mega-list or one with only a couple of picks each. Which, let’s face it, would be downright cruelty to ourselves. Our only rule was that any book on these lists has to be read during 2021, regardless of when they were published and by whom. And we had to love them, obviously. Maybe. I mean, when you keep shouting at the author in private for things they did, it’s surely a sign of love, right? Even if you call said author names… *ahem* Anyway next up is Jen with her Top 10 Reads of 2021!
Jen reviews Blacklight Born, the third book in The Combat Codes Saga, Alexander Darwin’s Sci-Fi Fantasy series.
Jen reviews Grievar’s Blood, the sequel to Alexander Darwin’s SPFBO 6 Finalist, The Combat Codes, the second book in The Combat Codes Saga.
In April we finished up SPFBO 6, we posted some reviews, a lot of spotlights, and fun stuff, toured books and showed off covers, so buckle your belts, and let’s see what we were up to in April!
February went away way too fast. I WANT MY BIRTHDAY MONTH BACK! *ahem* We’ve been busy with SPFBO reading and SoT and a lot of other things. Though, to be absolutely honest, I’m struggling with reading a lot these days, so it’s probably about time for me to take a nice long break.
But fear not, we still had quite a lot of content in February including reviews, author spotlight, book tours and a lot of other things.
As promised, we continue reviewing the SPFBO 6 Finalists. Our next one up is The Combat Codes by Alexander Darwin, chosen by the Fantasy Book Critic team.
February is my favorite month, even though I hate winter, but I was born in this cold, gray and well, weather-wise not really flattering of a month, so, you know… I’m kinda obliged to love it. We have a lot of content coming your way this month: reviews, features, SPFBO stuff, an interview, cover reveals, book tour encores. Check it all out!
After some debate, we decided that instead of doing one short (top 3 reads each which would have been downright cruelty to ourselves), or one very long (top 10 reads each, squeezed together) post on our favorite reads in 2020, we’ll do three separate ones. Mainly because we’d like to highlight as many books as we can, regardless of when they were released, if they are indie, self-published, or traditionally published. The only criteria were that we had to read it in 2020. And maybe like it too. A tiny bit. Maybe. Last but not least it’s time for Jen’s Top 10 Reads of 2020.
