The Sobeks 2018 – Part 4

Woohoo! We made it! Happy New Year everyone!

Yet, before I start on my substantial pile of 2019 reads, it’s time to take one last look back over the previous year. The Sobeks are my prestigious annual awards that showcase the very best novels that I have reviewed. These are the ones that I have awarded 4 stars or above to on Goodreads, which is a select few as I am a bit stingy when it comes to giving out high ratings!

Just in case your Christmas money is still burning a hole in your pocket, here is the last set of winners. They are all taken from novels that I read and reviewed in October, November and December. Check back on the 3rd January for a sneak peak about what will be coming up next on Arkham Reviews over the first few weeks of this wonderful new year!

The Sobeks 2018 – Part 3

Hello again. There isn’t much left of 2018 now and so it’s a good time to look back and remember all the brilliant worlds that I have had been able to explore in the last year.

The Sobeks are my annual awards where I showcase my favourite reads of the year. These are the ones that I awarded 4 or 5 stars to on Goodreads. As I don’t give high ratings out to just any book, you can consider these to be the absolute cream of the crop and certainly worth your time.

Curious? Well, read on to find out what my recommendations are. This time, I’ll be looking back at the novels which I reviewed in July, August and September.

The Sobeks 2018 – Part 2

Hello and welcome to my continuing retrospective of my favourite reads of 2018.

In case you missed my previous post, the Sobeks are my prestigious annual blog awards. I take a look back over the previous twelve months and showcase every review that I awarded 4 stars or above on Goodreads. As I’m very stingy when it comes to giving high ratings, you just know that all of these books are of the highest quality.

In this post, I’m going to be talking about the winners from April, May and June. If you’re looking for some great ideas of things to read in the new year, look no further. My recommendations lie beneath the cut…

The Sobeks 2018 – Part 1

Hello Everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful festive season and welcome to the third annual Sobek Awards.

Named for this blog’s crocodilian mascot, this is a series of four posts that showcase the very best books that I have had the pleasure of reviewing in the past year. As I’m a bit stingy when it comes to giving “starred” reviews on Goodreads, I have selected my choices for each month based on the novels that I have awarded four stars or more. Hopefully, it will give you an idea of what to spend your obligatory Christmas book tokens on!

Anyhow, without further ado, here are winners for January, February and March:

The Sobeks 2017 – Part 4

Hello everyone.

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fantastic 2017 and are all ready to see what 2018 brings. I, for one, am really excited to discover some new favourite authors and series. My resolution is, as always, to post as many honest reviews as possible. Yet, before I get stuck into this year’s reviews, it’s time for my final look back on the gems of 2017.

In case you missed my previous posts, The Sobeks are my yearly blog awards. Rather than declare any one book as being the best, it is a look back at all of the stand-out novels that I read in 2017. These are the ones that I awarded 4 or 5 stars to on Goodreads. As you know, I’m a pretty critical reader so this is high praise indeed!

Read on if you’d like to learn about the best books that I read between October and December.

The Sobeks 2017 – Part 3

Hello everyone.

Is your Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket? To help you decide how to spend it, I thought I’d spend a few posts telling you about the very best novels that I have read this year. All of these books were worthy of a 4 or 5 star review on Goodreads and, as you know how fussy I can be, this means that I was absolutely blown away by them.

In today’s post, I’m going to be reminiscing about the books I read between July and September. Over this time, there was a decent number of books that made the cut. Read on for a wide variety of recommendations, links to my full reviews and adorable photographs of Sobek.

The Sobeks 2017 – Part 2

Hello everyone, and welcome to my run down of the best books that I read in 2017. If you missed my last post, these are the novels that I gave 4+ stars to on Goodreads – the ones that I found utterly engrossing and would recommend to everyone.

Unfortunately, this list is kind of short. Over this time I read fewer books as I took an exam and started a new job, and unfortunately most of those that I did read failed to earn this highly prestigious and sought-after literary award.

Anyhow, without further ado, here is the list of gems that I discovered between April and June:

The Sobeks 2016 – Part 4

Hello again and Happy New Year! Here’s hoping that your 2017 is miles better than 2016!

Before I start looking at a brand new year of books, here’s my final look back over the best novels that I read in 2016. As always, by “best” I mean everything that I awarded either 4 or 5 stars to on Goodreads. For this final post, I’ll be looking back over my favourite novels that I discovered between October and December.

Hope you enjoyed these last four posts! Now that my holidays are over, I’ll get back to looking at my usual reviews. I can’t wait to see what new gems I discover over the next twelve months!

The Sobeks 2016 – Part 3

Woot woot!

Named after my crocodile mascot, the Sobeks are the Arkham Reviews award for excellence. I award these only to the best novels that I review – those that are worthy of getting a 4 or 5 star rating on Goodreads. As you may have noticed over the previous two posts, this includes novels of many different kinds of genres so there’s something for everyone!

As none of the July reviews made the cut, today I’ll be looking back over the best reviews of August and September. Enjoy!
