Surprised no one's put up a thread like this yet and we're already more than halfway past the last month of the year! What works did you like the most (or least) that you read this year? I've read less than I expected and while there were definitely a few books I liked, the two that spring to mind immediately as the most enjoyable (meaning, I couldn't stop reading) were: All You Need Is Kill (2004, English trans. 2009) by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, a military SF novel The King's Daughter (1974) by Suzanne Martel, a French-Canadian historical novel targeted at juveniles I also really enjoyed Luna: New Moon (2015) by Ian McDonald for its depiction of a very unique and complex and very brutal laissez-faire system of economics in a weird amalgamated rule by aristocracy/oligarchy on the moon. I think the sequel has been released, so I'll have to pick that up.
