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.
