And here's my annual list of the best "new-to-me" books I read last year.

This year's count is 28 (assuming I didn't lose track of any that I read...and I really might have this year - I've been very distracted). That means I hit my goal of finishing at least 26 books in a year, which is getting tougher and tougher as a stay-at-home mother of TWO kids now. My full list can be found here.

The best book of the year was probably the short story collection Happily Ever After edited by John Klima. Almost every story hit the mark for me, which is rare in a short story collection. (Of course all but one story in the anthology was a reprint, heavily sourced from the Datlow and Windling collections. So this anthology may be a heavy retread if you have read a lot from those collections.)

The best list can be found here.
