I’ve always wanted to do one of those classic animal stories that make people cry, so this is like that…Disney with fangs

Yesterday[1] I did my top films of 2005, today I guess it is time for my top reads of the year.

    In no special order, my top reads of this year:

  • Iron Council by China Mieville – This is just a great read. I’ve enjoyed his other books, but they normally take a while to get through. I flew through this one. Loved the golems, and while I didn’t have any characters to love, I was interested in them all. I’m still undecided about the ending.
  • We3 a graphic novel by Grant Morrison & Frank Quietly – You’ll have to read this for yourself to get it because telling you that it is a sort of Homeward Bound meets Robocop would probably put you off. Not too sure about the proposed film adaption though.
  • Going Postal by Terry Pratchett – Another great addition to the Discworld ‘verse, this book introduces the character of Moist Von Lipwig. Hi-larious reading.

Only three books because I’m often harder on books than films, but also because I haven’t really been doing a lot of reading this year.

Linknotes:
  1. actually it wasn’t yestarday at all, it was today, but not the today that you are reading this. This is a post from the past. A time traveling post, if you will. Or not, whatever, its all good.

  1. Time Traveler's Wife was my favorite this year. Also really enjoyed The Knight and The Wizard by Gene Wolfe. Didn't enjoy Anansi Boys as much as other Gaiman books but I did enjoy it.

    I have heard good things about We3 and will put it on my list.

  2. Anne I did read The Time Traveller's Wife, and it was a very good read.

    Carl I've the library's copy of Anansi Boys almost two weeks overdue now. I'm so very bad ;)
