So I have gathered up recommendations and outside of school my reading list (roughly in order) goes:
- Gaiman - Just started Fragile Things, then Stardust
- finish Earthsea (very short and easy)
- Give Anathem another shot
- Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s etc.
- Reread the Lord of the Rings
- Hunger Games once copies free up
- Hermann Hesse
- Margret Atwood
- Wheel of Time (that’s waiting till it’s finished in 2013 though)
- Oh! and the new Temeraire somewhere in there
- plus rereading some Marion Zimmer Bradley since I’m definitely old enough for the sex scenes now
- Then Isaac Aismov
- maybe Terry Goodkind?
Poor Discworld keeps getting bumped back because it’s a big series. This will all take some time ‘cause when I’m doing a bunch of boring class reading I tend to not be as book thirsty. Still I think that’s should cover this year! Tell me if there’s something good I’m missing, but yeah I have several years of backlog after this plus not really factoring in rereading and I wanna eventually get through more Hugo and Nebula winners god do you want to know the best thing?
I already know of enough books I want to read to last at maybe 5 years and then I haven’t even really fleshed out my knowledge of classics or magical realism and there are so many basics of sci-fi I missed goodness
books are cool because when you get overwhelmed you can just roll around in piles of them.

- mkstvns said: Raymond E Feist shouldn’t be left off any fantasy list (unless you’ve read him already, I suppose).
- deweydell said: you can find the books. it probz only takes like ~3 hours to get through each one depending on how fast you read. also, have you read good omens?
