Gardens of the Moon was pretty good.
(Plus, Hairlock's bananas and Sorry's terrifying.)
Fantasy politics with a well-done magic structure. I particularly enjoyed the characters' suspicion and paranoia; ie. one character's narrow view vs the truth. Plus, Hairlock...

I'll add Wool Omnibus to my list.  I'm always down for a post-apocalypse story.

I didn't see the Martian yet.  If I remember correctly, a lot of people praised the tension and the science of the book.  I'll have to check that out too.

That reminds me of a really beautiful book/series that I found.  I recommend this book more than anything else I've mentioned in these posts: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld.  (I admit, I've been savoring it so I haven't read much past the first book.)  People label it "steampunk" but there's really so much more depth and thought that goes into the world than just "heavy metal stuff runs on steam power."  It's a war epic (if I'm using that term correctly) and focuses on the fear and horror of war more than anything else.  It takes place during an alternate First World War and the books are filled with gorgeous illustrations by Keith Thompson. ( Example: http://www.keiththompsonart.com/pages/negotiations.html )  Definitely check that out.  The science and biology in that book made my mind explode.

When Martin Luther King Jr marched on Washington and delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963, the now-senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders marched with King.  Come listen to Bernie get interviewed by Run the Jewel's Killer Mike.  Then let's imagine living in a more free, more civil, more equal, and less corrupted world.

I don't go out of my way to watch Bollywood movies (I should!) but I'm always impressed every time I watch a clip on YouTube.  Yeah, this definitely reminds me of Hong Kong action movies.
