Almost 10 months of 2016 are gone and the list of books I had written out to read only has a few titles struck off but the end f that list has extended to an extra couple of pages. I believe my total is 4 pages and that’s only what I’ve written down. There are quite a few, at least 50 but probably no more than 100, books that I’ve wanted to read but never bothered to write down the title or I know the author but they might have so many books that I just write their name.
Either way, the only reason I even wrote them down in the first place was for a reading challenge, which I failed if I was suppose to read them all in year. But I will finish them, eventually.
Right, enough chit chat. Here is my book list in no particular order
- A Song of Ice and Fire (5 books so far)- George R.R. Martin
- The Portrait of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde
- Ghost Story- Peter Straub
- The Left Hand of Darkness- Ursula K LeGuin
- Les Miserable- Victor Hugo
- Millennium Series (3 books) – Stieg Larson
- Ulysses- James Joyce
I had started this one a long time ago and had gotten about halfway through it. I stopped because I got really busy and I got bored.
- The Dark Half- Stephen King
This one I’m in the process of reading.
- The Quantum Universe- Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw
- Fahrenheit 451-Ray Bradbury
- In Cold Blood – Truman Capote
- Hyperion Cantos (4 books)
I started the first one, Hyperion, but with work and October just getting started I decided to leave it for now and pick it up after the month is over since i wanted to read something scary instead.
- The Idiot- Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Catch-22- Joseph Heller
- Dandelion Wine-Ray Bradbury
- The Children of Hurin- J.R.R. Tolkien
- To Kill A Mocking Bird-Harper Lee
I know, I know, this one a lot of people read in high school but for whatever reason the teacher I had ecided to skip it. I think we read one chapter and she was all oh I’m sure you guys will read it on your own yeah that didn’t happen I was busy reading Harry Potter or Call of Cthulu.
- Foundation Trilogy (3 books)- Issac Asimov
- Salem’s Lot- Stephen King
- House of Leaves- Mark Z. Danielewski
- Halloween Tree- Ray Bradbury
- The Stand- Stephen King
- The Silence of the Lambs- Thomas Harris
- Brief History of Time-Stephen Hawking
- Anna Karenina- Leo Tolstoy
- Moby Dick- Herman Melville
- Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man- James Joyce
- Something Wicked This Way Comes- Ray Bradbury
- The Dead Zone-Stephen King
- The Dark Tower Series (8 books)-Stephen King
He’s on here quite a bit I guess. I really love horror and his books always bring that wonderful tingle on the spine.
- The Illustrated Man-Ray Bradbury
He’s here a bit too.
So, that’s my list so far. If anything I will update the list every five or so books I find since an update for every time I find a new book would be exhausting. If you have any books to recommend leave a comment and if I haven’t read it I’ll add it to my list.
