One author is definitely dominating ;-) I couldn't say which of those 10 books I liked best though, they have all been pretty awesome!
1. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen --> One of the surprises this year. I never heard of the author before and thought I'd give it a try. Wouldn't have thought that it's that good and gripping!
2. The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson --> One of many Sanderson's on this list, a lovely well-written crime/fantasy novel for all ages!
3. The Fool's Assassin by Robin Hobb --> I have been waiting a looong time for this one and wasn't disappointed! All the feels, when I read about Fitz, Fool, Chade, Kettricken and so on.. I love them all!
4. The Innocent by David Baldacci --> A great page turner! Exciting until the end, and I loved the 2 main characters.
5. Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson --> What can I say? I love, love, love how epic this one is and how many scenes are just too awesome too be true! And by the way, KALADIIIIIN!!!!!
6. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson --> see Words of Radiance :D
7. The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson --> The TWISTS! Oh my god, I am still freaking out when I think about this awesome, emotional ending!
8. The Dark Tower by Stephen King --> Stands for the whole series I read within the last 3/4 years. Great books with memorable characters and a little bit of everything. Will surely read them all again one day! (and please no movie...)
9. The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg --> Also a surprise, wouldn't have thought that the book kept me entertained the whole time.
10. The Twelve by Justin Cronin --> Great second part! Apart from the ending :D But I still loved reading it and can't wait for the conclusion of the trilogy next year!
