Reading list – 2

Continuing from my previous post about my reading list, this time I bring books from my favourite genre. Science fiction and fantasy. I am a huge fan of fantasy, people have sometimes even mocked me for it. God knows why. I have always loved to get lost in a new world created by writers. How the land is, how people live and how everything works. The more detail, the better for me. Yes, I am that kind of person. It’s not enough that I read about a different world, I have to have many details about it. I am all for world building and perhaps, sometimes I obsess over it. I am not admitting to anything, it’s just some speculation.

Anyway, in 2017, I read quite a few books. Not enough to satisfy me but some of them were pretty epic stories so I am alright with not having read enough because what I read was superb. Sure, there were some things I couldn’t really read without feeling dissatisfied but the others more than made up for it.

This year, I have plans. A lot of reading in the plans. I know that this might seem a lot to some people but trust me, I devour books like I devour my food. Daily and as many times as possible. It’s mostly possible because sometimes I don’t buy paperback but rely on ebooks. Having an iPad and iBooks continues to be a blessing. So, without further ado, here’s the list of books I want to read this year :

  1. Age of Myth: Book One of The Legends of the First Empire by Michael J. Sullivan
  2. Age of Swords: Book Two of The Legends of the First Empire by Michael J. Sullivan

  3. The Fifth Season: The Broken Earth, Book 1 by N. K. Jemisin

  4. The Obelisk Gate: The Broken Earth, Book 2 by N. K. Jemisin

  5. The Stone Sky: The Broken Earth, Book 3 by N. K. Jemisin

  6. Sleeping Giants (Themis Files) by Sylvain Neuvel

  7. Waking Gods (Themis Files) by Sylvain Neuvel

  8. The Dragonbone Chair: Memory, Sorrow & Thorn Book 1 by Tad Williams

  9. Stone of Farewell: Memory, Sorrow & Thorn Book 2 by Tad Williams

  10. To Green Angel Tower: Memory, Sorrow & Thorn Books 3 & 4 by Tad Williams

  11. The Heart of What Was Lost: A Novel of Osten Ard by Tad Williams

  12. The Witchwood Crown: Book One of The Last King of Osten Ard (Last King of Osten Ard 1) by Tad Williams

  13. Frankly, anything by Tad Williams *
  14. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy

  15. Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

For now, these make the list, I’ll see as the year goes on if I wanna add more to the list or not. Based on this list, do you guys have any recommendations? If yes, please, share them with me, I am always up for adding more books to my list.

* About Tad Williams, I just recently started reading The Dragonbone Chair and I have to admit that I am absolutely in love with it. I am only sad that I didn’t get to read Tad Williams’ works earlier. The way he builds his world, his characters and everything else just…does it for me, frankly. Of course, I am only halfway through the first book, it might turn out that I might not be so fond of it later on. Who knows? (I really doubt it though)
