For me, I'd say my top 5 this year are all by author Brandon Sanderson. The Mistborn Trilogy and both books that are currently out of The Stormlight Archive (way of kings and words of radiance).

I'm terrible at picking favorites. I have too many of them! So far this year is The Body Electric or In Real Life. 2014 was A Thousand Pieces of You. 2013 was Prisoner of Night and Fog or Somebody Killed His Editor. 2012 I totally forgot to update Goodreads and 2011 was Catching Fire. :D

I've never read any of Sanderson's novels, but I keep hearing great things about them. Which would you suggest I read first?

I'm still not even far enough into my reading this year to have any favourites yet. I'm hoping that will change soon!

Personally i'd go with mistborn first (the first one of that is Mistborn: The Final Empire).
It's a lot quicker to get into than The Stormlight Archive, which each of the two books out are over a thousand pages, and that's only 2 out of 10 books.

Other than Mistborn, if you want to try out 1 book that isn't part of a series, Warbreaker is also a great pick. You could find it for free on his website, but it's probably easier to buy it complete (since currently on his website you have to click a different link for each chapter i think)

Lots of people say Warbreaker is best to start with b/c you don't have to commit to a whole trilogy.

On Goodreads, Warbreaker seems to be listed as the first in a series. I'm also a little confused by the fact that it seems to be a published "draft version." Mistborn looks interesting though, so I'll definitely check that out.

Poison Study, Forbidden, Infernal Devices

Warbreaker is it's own self contained story, he plans on going back to the world and making a sequel, but he hasn't yet. pretty much the reason it's a published draft version is because he was releasing it ask he was writing it, showing the different versions from first draft to final. He's also a writing professor, so I think it was kind of to show writers how much it changes.

Mistborn also has a fourth book, but thats the beginning of a kind of sequel trilogy, which also isn't really part of the self contained mistborn trilogy.
