The Library at Mount Char
Carolyn tells people that she's just a librarian, and to her, that's the truth. But her definition of librarian doesn't exactly line up with everyone else's. No, when Carolyn says that she and her siblings are librarians, she means that she and her siblings are near-godlike beings who work in specific areas of study in the Library, overseen by their seemingly omnipotent Father.
And Father has gone missing, leaving command of all of reality to whoever can seize control over the Library.

Where Futures End
They're five teenagers living in five very different futures, and one day they'll meet. And when that happens, they'll have to find out why the Other Place is calling to them-- and why their own world is slowly falling apart.

The Magicians
Quentin Coldwater is a genius who plans on getting into a good college. What he didn't bargain on was that he'd be accepted into an exclusive magical college no one's ever heard of-- or that the cultivation of his magical skills will eventually lead him to the world of Fillory, the setting of a series of books he's always dreamed of becoming a part of.
But when he finally reaches Fillory, it's nowhere near the land of his dreams.

Inherit the Stars

Asa's kingdom is being ravaged by a famine and an energy crisis, her sister is dying because of the mistakes she's made, and she constantly feels like she will never live up to the expectations of the rest of her family. But her home will die if her family-- her kingdom-- doesn't form ties with the more prosperous House of Westlet.

And Asa is a daughter of the House of Fane, so she'll do something to prove it.

The Best Books I've Read This Year: 2015
I've read a lot of books this past year, so I've decided to make a list of my favorites just to make it easier on all of us! (Note: this isn't necessarily a list of books published in 2015, but rather just a list of the best books I've read in 2015. You might find something from the '80s on here; you never know.)

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer
Magnus Chase is sixteen, homeless, and dead. In Valhalla. All because he saved Boston from a fire giant. The only problem is, if Valhalla is real, then the Norse gods are too. . .

The Girl on the Train
Every morning and every night, Rachel takes the train past the same stretch of houses and sees the same couple on their porch. She's seen them so many times, she's sure she practically knows them-- Jess and Jason, with their perfect little lives.
Then, one day, she sees something that could ruin that perfection. And so Rachel gets involved, desperate to keep at least one thing in her life perfect.

The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome
David Sarella dives into his dreams for a living. When he dives, he's a jewel thief, teaming up with his accomplice, Nadia, to steal expensive jewelry and bring it back up to "the real world", where it turns into a priceless form of artwork. The more dangerous the dream, the more valuable the object he brings up is.
Dangerous dreams can take their toll, though. But David doesn't plan on ending his career as a diver-- doesn't want to lose Nadia forever. So he goes on one last dive, risking everything he has in the real world just to catch a last glimpse of his dream world.
--The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome, by Serge Brussolo (translated by Edward Gauvin)

The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter
Lewis Winter is, to all appearances, a weak-willed drug dealer no individual would care about killing, let alone an entire criminal organization. Despite that, freelance hitman Calum MacLean has one job: murder Lewis Winter and be done with it.
The only thing is, Calum doesn't want to be tied to a single organization. But if he kills Winter, he'll be roped into a mess of loyalties that may wind up killing him.

But Clas Greve will ruin Roger Brown.

Snuff 
Sam Vimes, commander of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, has finally been dragged away from the city by his wife to go on a holiday. But despite what everyone keeps telling him, the countryside is just as horrific as the city, with birds clamoring at all hours of the night, elegant dinners that mean he has to be polite and gentlemanly, and. . . murder. Namely, the murder of a goblin, a creature looked down on by nearly everyone. But it's Vimes's job to extract justice, and do so he shall.

Century Rain
On one end of a wormhole lies the Earth of the future, a sprawling wasteland that's been destroyed as a result of rogue nanotechnology. What's left of it is explored by archaeologists like Verity Auger, who scrounge up bits and pieces of Earth's past lost to history. On the other end lies another Earth, frozen in the late 1950s but stuck with the technology of the 1930s, though Detective Wendell Floyd doesn't see anything amiss. 
And somewhere out there, there's a weapon that can destroy both worlds with ease.
--Century Rain, by Alastair Reynolds
