HCPL Top SF reads of 2014

Here are the top SF reads in Harris County Public Library for 2014.  The influence of TV and movies shows up strongly this year.  Because of that, I’m combining all of the Song of Ice and Fire books as one and giving it the top spot.  After that are the rest of the top ten.  There are a few other titles that belong in the same fictional universe, but as they are not entire series, I kept them separate.
