This year I’ve resolved to read more books in the actual year they are published rather than play catch up all the time. So far this has worked out quite well for 2011 books:
Among Others by Jo Walton (Tor Books)
Home Fires by Gene Wolfe (Tor Books)
Heroes by Joe Abercrombie (Orbit)
The Best Science Fiction & Fantasy of the Year Volume 5 by Jonathan Strahan (Night Shade Books)
Each book has been rewarding and enjoyable. If I ever get around to reviewing them they would each get a thumbs up. Each for different reasons. That last one is a bit of a cheat, I suppose, since it is an anthology of stories that were first published in 2010.
Next up in 2011 books is Embassytown by China Miéville (Del Rey).
