I am happy that N.K. Jemisin won. Currently reading the sequel to The Fifth Season - would say it's the best new book/series I've read this year.

This is one case where the adaptation might actually be better than the book...they'll have to sort out the pacing and the "action" for it.

Has it been a year already? I've only read one of the novels (The Obelisk Gate) - think I read at least three of the ones that were nominated last year. What do you recommend? I need something new to read.

The whole Novel category is pretty highly regarded this year, though I've only read two myself. I'd also say to check out the Novella category, some great work happening in that format lately.
