Some notes:

Thanks to Itamar for putting me on to the Vorkosigan Saga. As you can tell, I loved it, devouring one book after another.

Ancillary Sword is a great finish to the trilogy. I reread the first two books to remind me what was going on.

Elven came up somewhere for free. I don't know why I bothered to finish it.

The Dark Forest is the sequel to The Three-Body Problem. Cerebral but well-written SF. Loved it.

Read The Man in the High Castle as preparation for watching the TV series. Most of the conflict is internal. In many ways much more disturbing than the TV series, because it shows how normal people might think under a highly racist regime.

The rest of The Fall Revolution books are fun. If you like economics, armchair pol sci, the singularity, space, and technology, you should give them a read.

The Grace of Kings was not what I was expecting, but still fun. It's epic fantasy where a revolutionary war spans a continent.

Fool's Quest. I love Robin Hobb.

The Goblin Emperor is quietly beautiful, and often brought a smile to my face. So refreshing to read a book with a consistently likeable POV character.

Sorcerer to the Crown is a regency era fantasy and has a dragon in it. What more could you want?
