With 3,317,504 votes cast by readers, this list is sure to have a few undiscovered delights. Many of my own favorites of 2014 are well represented including the Science Fiction winner, The Martian, written by Andy Weir, tells the story of astronaut Mark Watney, one of the first people to walk on Mars and certain he he’ll be the first to die there as well. I listened to the audio version of this book and couldn’t get enough of it.
One of my other favs, Ancillary Sword, by Ann Leckie came in 12th place.
A bit surprised that Robin Hobb’s Fool’s Assassin only came in at 14th place in the Fantasy list. I love Robin Hobb, well, except her Soldier Son books, just couldn’t get into those. Looks like I should get my hands on The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness though, over 51,000 votes it should be amazing.
