I read a lot of mediocre stuff this year, but two are worth mentioning.

Wool - by Hugh Howey. He self-published Wool and now has a deal to make into into a movie directed by Ridley Scott. In that, it's a pivotal work in the self-publishing movement. http://www.amazon.com/Wool-Omnibus-Edition-ebook/dp/B0071XO8...

Blood Song - Anthony Ryan. Best epic fantasy I've read since Martin's Song of Fire and Ice. http://anthonystuff.wordpress.com/books/

A second recommendation for Wool and its sequals. I really hope the movie gets made.

Third that one. I'm not anxious to see a movie of Wool, but I hope one gets made for the sake of the author.
