Today the topic of Top Ten Tuedays is Top Ten Book read in 2014. This has been a good reading year; I’ve read 64 books so far and most of them have been at least good. On the other hand, few stood out as excellent. In the order I read them:

1, Andy Weir: The Martian
A lone man’s struggle to survive on Mars, after he was accidentally abandoned there during a NASA mission.

2, John Scalzi: Redshirts
A parody of various SF TV-shows.

3, Terry Pratchett: Night Watch
Commander Vimes and time travel!

4, Fiction River: Moonscapes
This is a short story collection centered on various moons.

5, Seanan McGuire: The Winter Long
The new October Day book where she finds out some disturbing things about her past.

6, Fiction River: Time Streams
Another short story collection, this time about time travel.

7. Kris Nelscott: A Dangerous Road
A historical mystery during the days when Martin Luther King was murdered.

8, Liu Cixin: The three body problem
An SF story set in China and a virtual reality world.

9, Lois McMaster Bujold: Diplomatic Immunity
One of my favorite book series, ever.

10, Agatha Christie: The Body in the Library

Special mentions to Brust’s Hawk and Priest’s Inexplicables (which I’m currently reading). Mostly I’ve been reading books from familiar authors and it’s always hard to compare them (like one set of friends against each other!).
