Hugo Nominations

So, it’s no secret that I love fantasy and sci-fi (the former more than the latter). I have in the past signed up for the Hugo Awards, but only in order to get a ton of new reading material. This year I was early enough to actually nominate stuff (open until March 10), so here’s my ballot as of right now:
