What I Read This Year

I read more this year than last year, and I'm happy about that. I'd still like to make more time to read more, and read more outside of the horror genre a bit more (there's always next year!); I also feel like I need to read more non-fiction (and I think I said that last year, too).

I did try reading a YA novel (Gunpowder Empire), and despite enjoying the author's work in the past, I just had a hard time enjoying it. I also read some series fantasy again this year (Dragonlance: Before the Mask), and struggled. There may have been a time that I enjoyed this kind of fiction, but these days, I'm just not into it. (That's not to say I'm "over" fantasy. My tastes have evolved and changed, and I suppose I just need to find something different the next time I decide to dip back into the fantasy genre.)
