Read in 2014: Books

A short list this year, only 26 books. I really stalled and stopped reading much after about August. I did however read a lot more new books this year – starting off by reading 2013 releases for my Hugo nominations, then reading a bunch of new 2014 books during the year. There’s a lot of very good fiction on this list.

Ancillary Justice – Ann Leckie
Rupetta – N A Sulway
Vicious – V E Schwab
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – Holly Black
The Shambling Guide to New York City – Mur Lafferty
Parasite – Mira Grant
The Summer Prince – Alaya Dawn Johnson
A Stranger in Olondria – Sofia Samatar
Annihilation – Jeff VanderMeer
The Last Weekend – Nick Mamatas
Authority – Jeff VanderMeer
The Name of the Star – Maureen Johnson
Neptune’s Brood – Charles Stross*
Broken Monsters – Lauren Beukes
Range of Ghosts – Elizabeth Bear
Shattered Pillars – Elizabeth Bear
Steles of the Sky – Elizabeth Bear
Acceptance – Jeff VanderMeer
Lagoon – Nnedi Okorafor
The Mirror Empire – Kameron Hurley
Scale-Bright – Benjanun Sriduangkaew
Lock In – John Scalzi
The Republic of Thieves – Scott Lynch
Ancillary Sword – Ann Leckie
City of Stairs – Robert Jackson Bennett
The Godless – Ben Peek*

* I’m still only about halfway through The Godless, and Charles Stross’ Neptune’s Brood is one of the only books I’ve ever abandoned without finishing.
