Best movie seen in 2005: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Hands down. No contest. It's hard even to think of a runner up. (I know this was released in 2004, but I saw it on dvd)
Best novel: Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell. Runners up: Never Let Me Go Kazuo Ishiguro, and Case Histories, Kate Atkinson (not necessarily in that order; I'm hedging my bets).
Best Fantasy: Od Magic, Patricia McKillip, with The Hallowed Hunt by Lois McMaster Bujold coming a close second.
Best Children's book: The Sea of Trolls, Nancy Farmer, with Conrad's Fate, Diana Wynne Jones as the runner up. (sorry Harry).
Happy New Year, everyone!
