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!

Hello Everyone!

Today, I’m continuing my look back at the best books I reviewed in 2016. This time I’ll be taking a look at the reviews I did between May and July. All of these novels are ones that I award 4 stars or above on Goodreads, and I’d personally recommend them to anyone.

If you choose to spend your Christmas money on any of them, I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did!

Hello friends!

I hope you had a fantastic New Year. Today, I’m posting the final instalment of the Sobek Awards, this time showcasing all of the best books that we looked at between October and December.

Now that the holidays are over, we’ll be returning to our normal reviews. What can you expect form Arkham Reviews in 2016? Well, more reviews of course! I’m planning to spicing up the schedule by reviewing more new releases and posting the occasional editorial to add a little more variety to site.

Hope you enjoy this last look back over 2015. Here’s hoping that 2016 brings a whole new run of enthralling reads!
