December brings a bit of panic. The year is ending! How is that possible! Christmas is coming! What am I going to get this person and that person? Order presents for my family in Singapore! Send Christmas cards! Quick! We have Christmas stockings but nowhere to hang them!
And more importantly, all these book lists that keep appearing every day! I want to read them all! But I haven’t even read ALL THE BOOKS from 2013 yet. Let alone 2012 and the years before!
But I am a sucker for lists and I keep opening the links and going through the books mentioned anyway.
So I’m going to add links here in case you’re into that sort of thing too…
From the UK:
Association for Library Service to Children’s notable books
SF and Fantasy
Not a ‘best of’ list but a pretty good one: Tor.com’s standalone fantasy/SF novels
