I promised in my 100th post that I'll make posts out of the best books of the month, season and year. I decided to skip the monthly awards altogether because I don't read that many books per month. However, I'll still share with you my monthly favorites in my usual monthly wrap-up post but that will be all.
I'd planned to write seasonal recaps as well but I decided against it because I see no point in doing the seasonal awards and the seasonal wrap up.
I thought of 10 categories for my Seasonal Bookish Awards, I hope you'll enjoy my post. Unlike myself I won't say anything about the books, I'm just going to paste in a Goodreads link and cover.

Thiago from the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy
Cress and Thorne from Cress
Thorne shuffled his feet. “You know, if it was a bad kiss, you can just say so.”
She stiffened. “That’s not at all what I … Wait. Did you think it was a bad kiss?”
“No,” he said, with an abrupt, clumsy laugh. “I thought it was … um.” He cleared his throat. “But there were clearly a lot of expectations, and a lot of pressure, and…” He squirmed in the chair. “We were going to die, you know.”
“I know.” She squeezed her knees into her chest. “And, no, it wasn’t … I didn’t think it was a bad kiss.”
“Oh, thank the stars.”
from The Fiery Heart and Silver Shadows (after he stops whining)
"It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such. The dragon, you know, hunkered in the village devouring maidens, heard the townsfolk cry ‘Monster!’ and looked behind him."
That was it, I hope you enjoyed my post and like this new feature on my blog. Don't forget to tell me in the comments what your pick would be for a seasonal award. Choose one book from your 2014 summer reads list to every topic, of course you don't have to write to all the topics.
