Books I plan to read soon.

I’m a compulsive book collector (my family has despaired over this for as long as I can remember), and I own a lot of books. I have not read a lot of them (although I’ve read more than I haven’t.) I wanted to make a list of books to read so I can get through some of them, and I figured, why not make it on the blog.

These are books I own but haven’t read:

  1. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
  2. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente.
  3. The City & The City by China Miéville.
  4. The Scar by China Miéville.
  5. New Spring by Robert Jordan.
  6. The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner.
  7. Curry: A Tale of Cooks and Conquerors by Lizzie Collingham.
  8. Batman: Year One by Frank Miller.
  9. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Vol 1.) by Alan Moore.
  10. Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood by Oliver Sacks.
  11. Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books by Azar Nafisi.
  12. Kick-Ass by Mark Millar.
  13. Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan.
  14. Malgudi Days by R.K. Narayan.
  15. Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones.
  16. Two Lives: A Memoir by Vikram Seth.
  17. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.
  18. Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein.
  19. Anathem by Neal Stephenson.
  20. Ringworld by Larry Niven.
  21. Fannie’s Last Supper by Christopher Kimball (I’m halfway through this one.)
  22. The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke.
  23. Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
  24. Notes from a Big Country by Bill Bryson
  25. A Sickness in the Family by Denise Mina

(Edit: I’m linking to posts about books as I finish them.)

I’m going to pledge to read these books before I buy any new ones. For extra motivation, I’m going to post the books that I do want to buy/read soon (heavy on fantasy because that’s what I’ve been reading up on):

  1. Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
  2. Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
  3. The Alcatraz series by Brandon Sanderson
  4. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
  5. Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  6. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  7. The Windup Girl by Paulo Bacigalupi
  8. River of Gods by Ian McDonald
