I’m considering only books I read for the first time within the past three years (2012-2014), but ones which I either read a lot of times in those three years or which I think are likely to become long-time favorites to return to. I’ve listed the years and the number of times read (if greater than one) in that year after each book.
The Far West, Patricia C Wrede (12,13,14) and sequels: a delightful trilogy set in an alternate US frontier
Libriomancer, Jim C. Hines (12,13) and sequels: magicians pull objects out of books and secret organizations reach forward out of times past
Roller Coaster, Karin Kallmaker (12,13, 14×2): I love the characters in this one
Pantomime, Laura Lam (13,14): Again, I love the characters, and the world is intriguing
Quicksilver, R.J. Anderson (13): a contemporary asexual character; need I say more?
Crown of Vengeance, Mercedes Lackey (13×2): a fascinating world; I love the language in this one
Etiquette and Espionage, Gail Carriger (13×2) and sequels: just pure fluffy fun
Broken Trails, D Jordan Redhawk (13,14×2): set in Alaska; a slow-building romance
Shadowplay, Laura Lam (14×2): sequel to Pantomime; a beautiful developing relationship
Magpie Lord, K J Charles (14×3) and sequels: gay romance in Victorian England, and magic
