batyatoon: (l'chaim!)
The guests have all gone home, the leftover food has been put away, and I am slowly sliding toward sleep.

Whatever 2013 held for you, good and bad together, my wish is for 2014 to be better.

Happy New Year, my dearests. You know I love you.

The year in review, as seen through public posts in this journal. Leaving out last year's end-of-year memes. (Bolded phrases are subject lines; unbolded are first lines of the post, used where no subject line exists.)

January: a random act of kindness
February: [purimgifts] Dear Author
March: Safely and exhaustedly arrived back in NY. Consonance was amazing.
April: Pesach recipe round-up
May: a postcard from the magical land of sick
June: Conterpoint ahoy!
July: So we saw Pacific Rim today.
August: a mazel tov
November: (It is completely ridiculous that I haven't posted a thing since August.)
December: words, words; they're all we have to go on
batyatoon: (the world is quiet here)
Once again: the full list of books I read in the past year. Not counted are comic books, graphic novels, fanfics, works in progress that I have edited or beta-read, or webcomics.

Titles behind the cut-tag. )

Since I've got six years of data now, I figured it was time to start analyzing trends!

My first-time-read count is 42 this year (24% of total books), up from 32 (20% of total) last year. My five most-read authors (by book count) this year were Lemony Snicket, Mary Renault, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling, and Laura Ingalls Wilder; last year's were Lois McMaster Bujold, Stephen King, Terry Pratchett, Naomi Novik, and Sherwood Smith.

My five most-read authors over these six years are Terry Pratchett, Lois McMaster Bujold, Stephen King, Diane Duane, and Naomi Novik. My most reread books are William Gibson's Pattern Recognition (nine times in six years) and Jo Walton's Among Others (six times in two years).
