In the books read department, when I couldn't sleep on Saturday night...
25. FIRE by Kristin Cashore
I was incredibly lucky to snag a copy of this at this year's BEA and I adored it. I think it touched on a number of themes that are very close to my heart, and at the end, I wanted more. I know it's a prequel to GRACELING, but it's really Fire's own story, which is great. If you liked GRACELING, you'll love FIRE. I eagerly await BITTERBLUE.
And it also has one of the most simply perfect last lines I've ever read in a novel.
