Of note, I started reading the Game of Thrones series and have just the most recent one to go before I'll join the waiting crowd for George R.R. Martin to write the remaining story! I have also discovered the Phyrne Fisher murder mysteries which I have been enjoying too.
I'm in the midst of finishing up The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. It's been hard going, not because it is a bad book but the writing style takes time to appreciate.
The titles that stand out for me this year have been:
The Last Runaway | Remarkable Creatures - both by Tracy Chevalier
The Dragon Keeper by Mindy Mejia
I have done a lot of reading on my iPad this year, some on my Kobo and some in print. I can't say I have a particular preference, but the convenience of ebooks has been a big plus for me.
I continue to read blogs and professional related stuff, but that is mostly done online via my iPad or computer.
How about you? Have you read any good stuff this year?
