For reference, a list of the books I read.

How many books read in 2014?
About 50.

Fiction/Non-Fiction ratio?
All fiction

Male/Female authors?
Only 8 books by a male writer this year, the rest by one or two female writers.

Favorite books read?
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore was not flawless but is probably the one that will stay the most with me for its complicated treatment of how one recovers of trauma on a country wide scale.

Least favorite?
Precious Dragon by Liz Williams bored me enough I decided to drop that seire sof book. Also I thought The Winds of Khalakovo by Bradley P Beaulieu was thoroughly confused and mediocre.

Oldest book read?
Probably the Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff, lol. (Which I thought felt rather painfully British at times.)

Newest?
Probably the Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. At least it is the "new hot book people are talking about".

Longest book title?
Well I reread "First Against the Wall" which is always a nice, long title.

Shortest title?
Cold Fire by Kate Elliott

How many re-reads?
About 6

Most books read by one author this year?
I read 10 books by Kate Elliott between the Crown of Stars and the Spirit Walker series.

Any in translation?
All in English.

How many of this year's books were from the library?
Zero. Haven't been much to the library this year.

Book that most changed my perspective:
I don't know that any really did that >_<

Favorite character:
Especially liked the protagonists of Kate Elliott's Spirit Walker trilogy (Cat, Vai and Bee), Alain in her Crown of Stars, Bitterblue in Bitterblue, Oda in the Kate Griffith books, and Sin in Sarah Rees Brennan's Demon series. Oh the protagonist from Slow River was pretty awesomely well realised as well.

Not counting characters from the books I've reread this year because OF COURSE I'm ridiculously fond of them.

Favorite scene:
hahahahahaha, go away.

Favorite quote:
Sorry, I don't write them out while I read, what do you expect?

Most inspirational in terms of own writing?
I don't know. Maybe Song of the Basilisk because Patricia McKillip's writing is always stunningly and hauntingly beautiful.

How many you'd actually read again?
Not quite sure, I could see myself reread about 5 of them (not counting those that were already rereads).

(she had two of them, but I got lazy).
