I have a list of books that I want to read this year, but as always, I’m thinking my eyes are bigger then my book stomach. So, I have compiled a list of books that I shouldn’t have a problem reading and completing before the end of the year. And as always, anything beyond that is a bonus. Here’s my list in no particular order:
- Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
- The End of All Things by John Scalzi
- Caliban’s War by James S. A. Corey
- Mars Life by Ben Bova
- Deadzone by Stephen King
- Dune by Frank Herbert
My thinking is pretty simple concerning this list. Scalzi, King and Bova are a few of my favorite authors. Dune because, well, I’ve been saying I am going to read it for a few years now and I never do. Well, not this year, and Relic because I read this book in high school, and to this day it is one of the best books I have ever read. Finally, Caliban’s War because I read the first book in the series, and now the series is on T.V. and if there’s one thing I love doing is reading the book before the T.V. series/Movie.
I’m not sure which order I will read these in, but Caliban’s War will probably be first and then Dune. After that, we’ll see what happens.
Happy New Year everybody.
