Yuletide 2015 recs (books)
wood cat

I still have, uh, several dozen fics I meant to reread for possible recommendation (some of which, on looking at my list, almost certainly will be recommended, arrgh), but if these recs don't get done tonight they won't get done before this year's reveals. Still, 77 is a quite respectable number even if I didn't read as widely as I usually do!

As always, I dumped everything I might theoretically want to read into Evernote before reveals, so these were all read with "anonymous" still as the author. They are organized into multiple posts by type of source, with cut-tags and section headings, to reduce tl;dr. Also I have proofread this as carefully as I can but my eyes are literally crossing from fatigue, so apologies if I missed a coding error or typo.

Here are the books recs!

12 Dancing Princesses; Aaronvitch, Rivers of LondonCollapse )

Addison, The Goblin EmperorCollapse )

Bradbury, 'There Will Come Soft Rains'; Bujold, VorkosiganCollapse )

Cho, Sorceror to the Crown; Oliphant, Miss Marjoribanks; Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; Eliot, Murder in the Cathedral; Leckie, Imperial RadchCollapse )
