Last years winners were:
2013 - The Ocean at the End of the Line by Neil Gaiman
2012 - The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
2011 - A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
2010 - Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
2009 - Dean and Gone by Charlaine Harris

This list makes me realize the number of interesting books I still haven't read this year. From the ones I have read making the list, so far, my vote is for The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks but it can still change with books like Prince of Fools on my to-read pile. I think that Robin Hobb or Brandon Sanderson are likely winners. What do you think?

It makes me sad that there are so many books on here that I haven't read because there's a good handful that I have and meant to read but just didn't get around to it. maybe this is time time of year to start doing my catch-up reading, so I don't enter 2015 with a bunch of reading regrets.
