The Kingdom of Gods, by N.K. Jemisin

A fitting end to a trilogy I just adore. These books make me purr like Sieh.

The Mistborn Trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn, The Well of Ascension, The Hero of Ages)

The more I read by Brandon Sanderson, the more impressed I get. This was a highly entertaining series—I read it over the holidays during a period where I needed to keep myself awake until 1:30 AM every night, and didn't nod off once. These will go on my "study" list as a writer, especially for their effective use of foreshadowing across multiple novels.

In all I read 40 books this year, not counting the Hugo nominees for shorter works.

If I had to pick a year's best, it would be a virtual tie between N.K. Jemisin's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and Mira Grant's Feed. Overall it was a very good year for the reading log.
