Ten Yuletide recs, with tl;dr fangirly useful canon information for each because you need to read these books:

recs for The Dalemark Quartet (Diana Wynne Jones), The Gentleman Bastard Sequence (Scott Lynch), The Handmaid's Tale (Margaret Atwood), I Capture the Castle (Dodie Smith), Malay literature, Matilda (Roald Dahl), To Say Nothing of the Dog (Connie Willis), Sunshine (2007 movie) )

I have a few more fics and fandoms, but I'll leave that for some other time. Oh. And AO3's bookmark feature is awesome; bookmark or rec at one go -- you don't even need posts like these, but of course we like long, rambly, off-tangent posts. This has been a "books you should read!" post almost as much as a fic rec post, but hey, sharing things you love is a good thing, right?
