She liberated me to life.” — Leigh Newman Because all those subtle, change-everything moments in Munro’s fiction are the same ones we need to take note of in our real lives.

And now, the final results are in. While it's no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with. Selecting a manageable voting roster from among the more than 1,200 nominations that came in from readers wasn't easy, and we were happy to be able to rely on such an experienced panel of judges.
