The last twelve* books I read

As a new year starts, I see lots of people vowing to read plenty of books in 2017. I love reading but I always struggle with finding the time, so with that in mind, I’ve decided to list the last dozen I read in an attempt to motivate me to the next 12. That’s only one a month after all. There are a couple of series in there, so I’ve classed those as one each.

Leviathan Wakes by J CoreyThe first in a long series of near future science fiction, recently adapted for TV and it's great!
Night Without Stars by Peter F HamiltonThe final book in Hamilton's 2 parter that finishes off his Commonwealth books. Satisfactory ending.
The Gentleman Bastard sequence by Scott LynchThese are great, real sense of adventure and brilliant humour. Suffer a little if read back to back as a tad formulaic.
The Psychopath Test by John RonsonOne of two non fiction titles here, brilliantly funny but also great empathy from Ronson as he examines what a psychopath is.
The World of Ice and FireWell, GRRM isn't actually going to get a physical novel out any time soon is he?
Dancer's Lament Ian EsslemontAnother of the legion of Malazan spin off books, can't believe they're so well written given how many there are.
Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad WilliamsIn my opinion, the best fantasy series ever, and I reread it as a new series is coming. WooHoo!
The Thing Explainer by Randall MunroeRandall Munroe, of fame, uses an incredibly limited vocab to explain very complicated stuff. It's great

*  the astute among you might currently be railing at how that list isn’t 12 books long. It contains some series. You can even debate how long one of them is- it was 3 books in hardback, 4 in paperback.
