Out of the SF novels, I had just picked up Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro from the Library today from a recommendation I received. Interesting coincidence, that!
Out of the Fantasy novels, Neil Gaman's Anansi Boys was bookwyrmmes book of the month. That's the only one I read. Though Robin Hobb is on my list to read.
Out of First novels, Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder was the only one I read.
Out of YA Books, Holly Black is the only one I'm really interested in reading. I enjoyed her Spiderwick series.
Out of Collections, I already have Garth Nix's Across the Wall on my list to buy.
Anthologies, Non-Fiction, Art Books, Novellas, Novelettes, and Short Stories had nothing that interested me! I didn't even recognize most of the authors and these are supposed to be the best for 2005?
And in other and better news: Eric Flint and Dave Freer just sold..."drumroll, please"...The Sorceress of Karres, another sequel to James Schmitz's The Witches of Karres. I don't have a release date though.
