I keep seeing book-lists and challenges for 2015, mainly people promise themselves to read books by author with diverse ethnic origins, autobiographies, historical tomes or disadvantaged individuals. I thought about doing my own list, but it seemed pointless to wrap myself up in cellophane and limit myself so much, especially when I already know that there are a number of books waiting on the shelf, freshly bought, which I have not read yet.
So, instead of making a list of books I ‘SHOULD’ read, I’m making one listing the books I am sure I WILL ACTUALLY read.
1. The Blood Knight – Greg Keyes – right now I’m finishing ‘The Charnel Prince’, which is the second book of the quartet ‘The Kingdom of Thorn and Bone’. It will be finished by tomorrow at the latest, so this is what comes after.
2. The Born Queen – Greg Keyes – Quartet book number 4
3. Good Omens – Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett – bought this last weekend and I can’t wait to start it.
4. Stardust – Neil Gaiman – it’s been a long time in coming, bought it last weekend as well ❤
5. The Silmarillion – J. R. R. Tolkien – I know, I know, but better late then never right?
6. Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn – I already read this in 2012, but after watching the movie I MUST re-read it again 🙂
7. The White Queen – Philippa Gregory – some time ago I came across a tiny bookshop which sells really cheap secondhand books, it hardly had anything I liked, and then I discovered a treasure trove of Gregory’s books. I had already devoured The Wideacre Trilogy and the Tudor series ages ago, so I bought the first 5 novels which make up the Cousin War series. Still gotta get the last one, published in 2014. The next 4 novels are the other books in the series.
8. The Red Queen – PG
9. The Lady of the Rivers -PG
10. The Kingmaker’s Daughter – PG
11. The White Princess – PG
12. Prince Lestat – Anne Rice – I’m currently waiting for this one to come out in paperback.
I’m guessing that will take care of the first two/three months of the year for sure. After that… who knows? Bookdepository is my oyster ;p
