I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to read a book (unless it was a textbook for school), I was always reading and was always excited to receive books as a gift or buy them myself. Because of this I have a never-ending list of books to read. I finish one book and there are three more added to the list. The list in my head has grown so much I started to write them down so I could keep track of them all.
In making this list I made a decision, there are a whole bunch of books that I want to read throughout the year of 2016…I think I read maybe 5 of them and there are 26 on my list. (Yeah I was attempting the 26 book challenge, but work and life decided to get in the way) SO I decided to narrow down my list to three books to read before the end of 2016.
- Hyperion by Dan Simmons
I’ve only just started this book and I am HOOKED! I’ve read plenty of other sci-fi books: Dune, Hitchhiker’s Guide, THe Martian Chronicles, Brave New World…A lot. This story about seven pilgrims journey to the world of Hyperion so far is reminiscent of The Canterbury Tales but I’ll find out as I continue.
- Misery by Stephen King
THis book has been on my list forever. I’ve been a horror fan since I was 10 and Stephen King’s stories, and movies, has haunted my nightmares ever since. I’ve read a good portion of his work and always made sure my closet doors were closed and feet tucked into the blanket so nothing could grab an ankle and drag me under the bed…then again it’s not like there’s anything there. RIght?
- In Cold Blood
Being one of the first true-life crime novels, it’s on many Need-to-Read lists. I’m not really one for true crime, but this one I’ll make an exception. A supposed chilling read, I hope it lives up to the hype I’ve read and can check it off my list.
There’s my list, if possible I would add another but only time can tell if I can do that. I’ll post my actual book list a little later, once I can find all the pieces to it. (It’s all written on several scraps of paper).
What books do you want to read before the end of the year?
