Impossible! But I'll just list the last three things I liked, and maybe that will help.

-Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy. Only the first 2 books are out so far, but they're delightfully creepy.

-Kate Griffin's Matthew Swift series. Modern-day fantasy set in London, about an "urban sorcerer" and his existentialist adventures. Hilarious, marvelously-written, wonderfully imaginative.

-Kate Elliott's Spiritwalker series. Complete gonzo fantasy -- swashbuckling heroines punching sharks and chasing love through two worlds (one of which is an AU Earth in which Africans colonized Europe) with dragons, the Wild Hunt, and dinosaurs. (less)

That's a hefty hike, across GLASS-COVERED JAGGED GROUND THAT IS STILL HOT FROM AN ERUPTION DECADES AGO. I could've gotten really hurt. :) Don't do that. :)

But fortunately I was fine, and I even stopped to toast some spam sushi over a heat vent for a delicious geothermally-warmed lunch.(less)

“In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

“For all those that have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Fifth Season

“We can never be gods, after all--but we can become something less than human with frightening ease.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
