Are you feeling the January blues? Well, here are some ideas of things that you can read next to get your spirits back up! The Sobeks are named for my blog’s mascot and are a celebration of all the very best books that I have read over the last twelve months. These are determined based on the ones that I awarded 4+ stars to on Goodreads.

For this final post, I will be looking at the books that I reviewed between October and December. While I was a bit lax in my posting over this time, I was still lucky enough to find some real gems. You should definitely check these authors out!

The Sobeks 2019 – Part 3

Welcome back to The Sobeks – my annual book awards.

While I didn’t have a lot to say in my previous post, I’m pleased to say the most of the books that I read over the summer months have made this list. This was when my “Summer of Middle Grade” event was well underway and I discovered a whole bunch of exciting new authors. It was also around the time that I discovered Owlcrate – a monthly Young Adult subscription service – which has become my favourite new source for random books!

As always, these are all books that I read between July and September of 2019 and awarded 4+ stars on Goodreads. Please do check them out – I really enjoyed them all and would love to hear what you think.

The Sobeks – Part 2

Welcome to the second part of The Sobeks – my annual award ceremony to honour my very favourite reads.

In case you missed my last post, this is a brief look back at everything that I read last year so I can share with you my absolute favourites. As you are aware, I can sometimes be quite a harsh reviewer and books have to do a lot to earn 4+ stars from me on Goodreads and Amazon.

There actually weren’t any books in April that made the cut this year, but here is a selection of my favourites from May and June, including links to my reviews and where you can buy them for yourself!

Anyhow, without further ado, welcome to The Sobeks!

These books vary in themes and target audiences, but are all utterly fantastic and so I would certainly recommend that you check them out.

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 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.

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.

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

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.
