My favorite books from 2013

Semicolon's regular Saturday Review of Books is in list form today, on the subject of the books you've read in 2013 (or variations thereof). I decided to just highlight my favorites from the 50 or so books I read this year*, separating them into fiction and non-fiction, and whether or not they were new to me. I also set apart the kids' books, just because that seemed useful. :)

So, here are the books I enjoyed the most this year:

New-to-me Fiction:
- McKinley, Robin. Shadows. (My review is here.)

Old favorites (fiction):
- Bujold, Lois McMaster. A Civil Campaign.
- Bujold, Lois McMaster. Komarr.

- Czerneda, Julie. Migration.
- Czerneda, Julie. Regeneration.
- Czerneda, Julie. Survival.

- Wodehouse, P. G. Carry On, Jeeves.
- Wodehouse, P. G. Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit.
- Wodehouse, P. G. Joy in the Morning.
- Wodehouse, P. G. RightHo, Jeeves.

Old favorites (kids' fiction):

*I have to say: editing one book and writing another certainly cut into my reading time this year!
