New Years Resolution

I'm determined to go through the pile of books and my stack of graphic novels that I have accumulated over the past couple years. Don't even get me started on the amount of ebooks I have to read as well. It has since grown thanks to the holidays ^^'' but I am determined to prevail! This year my New Years Resolution will be to work through my stack and finish my goal of 100 books. There are several books that I have started reading and just set aside without picking them back up again. This year is going to be the year that I nip that in the bud and finish what I started. And if I have to drop a book, so be it, but I shall at least attempt to read what has been set aside.

TBR List, or 7 Owned Books to Read in 2017
Collected Fictions - Jorge Luis Borges,Andrew Hurley
Twilight of the Empire - Simon R. Green
Little, Big - John Crowley
The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke
Ghost Story - Peter Straub
Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons

Like most readers, I have a boatload of books I own that I have yet to read. This year, I will read 25 of them. Here are the musts.

 

1. Collected Fictions - Jorge Luis Borges,Andrew Hurley   Collected Fictions - Jorge Luis Borges  

    I've read a bit of Borges, and have deeply enjoyed it. That's why this is here.

 

2. Twilight of the Empire - Simon R. Green    Twilight of the Empire - Simon R. Green  

 

   The Deathstalker series is the only one I have yet to read by Green, and these are the novellas that introduce that universe. I own the whole series, so I should maybe get started, yeah? Besides, Space Opera rocks!

 

3. Little, Big - John Crowley  Little, Big - John Crowley  

   I've started this a couple of times, and got distracted. Not this year! It's la lyrical beauty that can't be rushed, but I will make the time.

 

4. The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly  The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly  

 

    I've read and loved the Gates series, as well as Connolly's second collection, Night Music. I started this one years ago, and will actually follow through this time.

 

5.  Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke  Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke  

 

    Another one I got distracted during (are we sensing a theme?), this is a serious beast of a book, but I've loved what I've read, and the depiction of Faerie is unique, to say the least.

 

6.  Ghost Story - Peter Straub  Ghost Story - Peter Straub  

 

   A genuine horror classic that I've been threatening to read for about a decade. There is no reason I haven't read this yet.

 

7.  Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons  Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons  

 

   Another big mother(shut yo mouth), this fell into the must list after I read The Terror last year. That one started slow, but was frigging awesome. I'm hoping this one kicks in a little quicker.

 

There's my seven must-reads from my ridiculous TBR pile, but there's a lot more where those came from. At least 18, some even more imposing.

As imposing, anyway.

2017 Goals

New year, new plan.

First, I'm planning on 75 books this year. My goal last year was 100, and I met that, but I'm hoping to be a little more social in '17. Maybe.

Second, I'm going to read 25 books I already own that, for some reason, are sitting, sad and neglected, unread on my shelves.

Third, I'm going to read a few more "high-brow" (but still SF/F/Horror) novels,

Last, I'll try to be better on my follow-through. If I want to finish a book, I will. If not, I'll drop it without regrets (yeah, right).

That's my plan, anyway. Here's hoping!
