What are your top 5 reads of the year? Aeryn Send a noteboard - 31/12/2014 02:00:00 PM

The best books I've read this year were (no particular order):

  1. Kameron Hurley ~ God's War (the entire scifi trilogy)

  2. Ann Leckie ~ Ancillary Justice (scifi space opera)

  3. Rosemary Kirstein ~ The Steerswoman (the entire series, 4 books so far). The one merits a few words: you should read it! It is nominally fantasy, but with a scifi world underneath it, as the main character slowly discovers with the power of the scientific method of inquiry. Very enjoyable read.

  4. Laini Taylor ~ Books 2&3 of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy (dark fantasy)

  5. Madeline Ashby ~ vN (scifi)

I didn't read nearly as much sf/f this year as any of the previous years, but these were all solid.

What about you - what are some of your favorite reads from this year?

ok, first you whine that nobody's posting, then you whine that it's the wrong people. - 07/01/2015 11:14:03 PM 659 Views
