My top recommendations out of the books that were new to me this year:

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, To Say Nothing of the Dog and Blackout/All Clear, all by Connie Willis, Are Women Human? by Dorothy Sayers, and the four Tiffany Aching novels by Terry Pratchett. I could go on naming outstanding books, because I read a lot of good books this year, but those are the ones that stand out the most.
