2017 Reading List

Everything I read in 2017, with 2017-published works separated out and bolded if I’m considering nominating them for Hugos.  See 2016 and 2015 lists.  (And for what it’s worth, there are plenty of works that I enjoyed quite a bit but am unlikely to nominate; don’t take the lack of bolding as an indication that I didn’t like it!)
