This year I've taken up knitting full time (4 months on a blanket alone) and didn't feel the draw to any books or authors this year. There was some truly amazing keepers from A Darker Shade of Magic, Magonia & Valiant. Some of biggest draw for me was some amazing middle grade books like Omega City and Under the Egg. I also fell in love with new authors for me like Cat Winters, Simone St.James and Betty Neels, who am hoping to track down more from her backlist this upcoming year.
So while this wasn't my biggest reading year, I think it turned out to be a nice year for new discoveries in the reading genre.
