This month you’ll be getting all my favorite characters. So, let’s kick things off with letter A to E!

A – Aelin from the Throne of Glass Books

I’m expecting Aelin to be rather popular this week. However, I couldn’t have skipped her. She’s such a great character with so much depth and facets. And let’s not forget all the development and how far she comes in the course of all Throne of Glass books.

B – Brienne from the A Song of Ice and Fire Books

For some reason, Brienne from Game of Thrones was the very first character that popped into my head when I thought about the letter B. To be perfectly honest, I don’t remember the books all the well, but she certainly was among the best characters in the show, so I’m pretty sure she was amazing in the books as well!

Today I’ll share some of the most surprising reads I had this year. So let’s get started!

#1 Watchmen by Alan Moore

I don’t normally read comics or graphic novels. However, I already saw so many movie/TV show adaptations coming from that background, I first gave it a shot this year. I checked out The Umbrella Academy and wasn’t too impressed. The story was sort of weird and didn’t make sense, but I figured maybe the format just isn’t the right thing for me.
When the new Watchmen series started airing I was positively hypnotized by the story so I figured I should pick up the graphic novel to find out some more about where all of it came from. Guess what? I had a great time with the graphic novel and immediately went back to the library to pick up From Hell and the Scott Pilgram books to give those a shot as well. Maybe graphic novels do work for me after all!

#2 Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

2019 is the year I got hooked on book subscription boxes. It’s one of my favorite things at the moment and I already got so many amazing little trinkets and novels this way. Sorcery of Thorns is one of them. I had never heard about the book or the author but when I lifted the book out of the box I was already in love. The story was just as brilliant, so it’s definitely one of my favorite surprise reads this year!
