With 113 books read, this is my best year since I have been doing the Goodreads challenge.
My final choice is based on the quality of the book, on how it resonated with me and my own experience, and on how it stayed with me. Some of these books may actually have got only 4 out 5 Eiffel Towers at the time I read them.

I enjoyed so much Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, that when I saw Robin Sloan had a new book out, I jumped on it, without reading the synopsis. That’s what I do with authors I’ve really liked. As the title says it, Sourdough is no longer about books, but about bread! However, geeks and computers are still around!
It was really hard to pick up 2 favorites this month. I also enjoyed a lot The Hidden Keys, and the much expected Sourdough, by the author of Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore
As you know, I rarely read dystopia or YA, but Icon is UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE: it was highly recommended by several people at Church. It is very unique, as it is is a REAL dystopia and YA novel, but with Christian Orthodox themes! So so well done!!
I took part in Bout of Books 20. It was a success for me, with lots of pages read, and tons of bloggers visited, as I decided to volunteer as an Expert this year, which consists basically in encouraging and congratulating the participants as they go along
