Zaz | 2978 comments Haha lucky you, Price&Prejudice is the only book I can think of that fits the sins prompt but I already read it!
I also have some Backman on my plan and hope to read at least 2 of his books in 2018, I loved Ove :)

Tracy (tracyisreading) | 2542 comments Mod
I noticed as I was making this that I had two Backman novels on my plan. Pretty much everyone on my friends list that has read Beartown gave it 5 stars. Ove was a great story, and My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You I'm Sorry has been sitting on my shelf for a while.

And I have NEVER read a Jane Austen novel lol. Every year I say I'm going to so hopefully this will work out. I haven't even made it halfway through my list for 2017 :-(

Brooke | 229 comments That is a great list, Tracy! I have several of the books on my TBR list. I haven't started planning my 2018 challenge yet - I doubt I will until late Nov when I have a 2-week break from work - but I have a feeling we will be reading several of the same books next year!

Cheri, Its been sitting on my kindle forever. My brother read it and said he really enjoyed it so I figured I would give it a try. I'll let you know what I think :-)

ARGGGHHHH!!!! I haven't read in months, so of course last week I decided it was time to start planning yet another challenge, lol. I've been tweaking this list for days and think I've finally got it where I want it. I have a written list of alternates.

So I see a buddy read or two in our future ;-)

I literally read All the Ugly and Wonderful Things this year and then came to a screeching halt. Read maybe two books in June and two books in July and just picked 11/22/63 up again. I'm feeling motivated at the moment. I'm hoping to get in 3 a week for 2018 so I can finish up this years challenges.

Cant wait to see your list :-)


message 8: by Marina H (new)

Marina H | 1314 comments I just bought a copy of Beartown the other day, but I don't think I can wait till next year before I read it. I love Fredrik Backman and his writing and have several of his books at home, so next year I think I'll re-read My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry and Britt-Marie Was Here.

Oryx and Crake has been on my TBR the last couple of years, so I hope can pull myself together and read it next year.

Tracy (tracyisreading) | 2542 comments Mod
Marina, I think I had Oryx and Crake on my list for something this year but didn't read it. I was fumbling with the Sci-Fi category, it always freaks me out.


message 10: by Angie (new)

Angie Good list. I keep seeing The Historian popping up all over the place. I'm going to have to check it out. I'm really intrigued by the book you have for #44.

I'm not a big fan of sci-fi either. I don't think my imagination is vivid enough.


message 12: by Jody (new)

Jody (jodybell) | 3468 comments I'm another one who's not the biggest sci-fi fan. Not the hard stuff, anyway. I think it's because there's often so much focus on the world building and sci-fi aspects at the expense of characters and story.

Angie, I've been seeing Horrorstor pop up on so many lists and reviews. I found it for under $3 on BookBuB last month, can't wait to read it. It was actually going to be one of my next reads, but now I guess I'll have to wait ;-)

The Historian has been sitting on my shelves for years, Ive never gotten around to it but it was highly recommended by a co-worker.

IDK, When I think Sci-Fi, I always think of The Hitchhikers Guide, and I hated that. I loved Stranger in a Strange Land, which I picked up a long time ago at random. I can never think outside the box of Outer Space when it comes to Sci Fi so I think thats what throws me off. I read The Martian two years ago and I was bored to death. Its just not my thing.....and I'll pretty much read anything :/


message 15: by Tammy (new)

Tammy | 704 comments What with Blade Runner part II just being released in theaters, maybe you should try Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. It is the original story behind Blade Runner and it is short!

I didn't really enjoy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy either, although I'm planning on giving it another go this year. I think of it more as a humour book though, I guess.

I read The Martian and had mixed feelings about it, and for me it's a good example of why I'm not a huge fan of the genre. It seems ridiculous to say, but it was just too science-y and dry for me. There was just too much detail on how he fixed each problem, where (for me) I would have preferred it to be more of an insight on his thoughts and feelings about being stranded there, other than variations of "I'm fucked and I'm gonna die." - but then I guess it wouldn't be sci-fi!

A sci-fi book that I absolutely loved was Kindred, if you haven't read that yet.

I made a comment somewhere about the details in The Martian....too much math, too many potatoes!!

Kindred is on my list for some challenge I haven't gotten around to yet, and its one that I'm definitely looking forward to, so Maybe I should move it here for this year. Thanks.

Jackie | 1544 comments Mod
Haha it's funny that you all hated the science portions of The Martian when I loved that aspect. I'm glad that it didn't focus on his "inner tormoil" or anything like that because then *I* would have been bored to tears! Just goes to show that everybody's got a different take.

I listened to it on audio which is always hard for me because my mind wanders and I miss a lot of the story that way....so, the only thing I remember about it was that it was long and there was an exorbitant amount of math and potatoes.....and maybe poop?

I always wonder after I listen to an audio , if I would have enjoyed it more if I actually read it.


message 20: by Charity (new)

Charity (faeryrebel78) | 552 comments I really enjoyed The Hour I First Believed, I Know this Much is True, and Pride and Prejudice. Hope you enjoy them!

I'm hoping to read Oryx and Crake next year. It's been on my shelf for a while and I've never gotten around to it. The Historian has been on my shelf for quite a while too. I think I've been intimidated by the size. Maybe I should try to fit it on somewhere too.


message 21: by Tracy, Constellation Mod (new)

Tracy (tracyisreading) | 2542 comments Mod
Charity, I feel like I have quite a few really big long books on my list.
I've read She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb and ever since then have bought everything he's come out with, I just haven't read them yet, so I was REALLY excited they were in my top ten.


message 22: by Charity (new)

Charity (faeryrebel78) | 552 comments I fell in love with Lamb's work because of She's Come Undone too! I have We Are Water on my list for this year.

I had no idea, I've heard of it. Maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion, I always need help when it comes to Sci-Fi prompts. Two that I own and had thought of were Neuromancer and (R)evolution, Not sure if anyone has experience with either of those. I probably should put Sci-Fi under a book that intimidates me lol


message 24: by Tammy (new)

Tammy | 704 comments I find Sci-Fi difficult to warm to. I'm going to rip off the band-aid and read Dune in 2018. At least Philip K. Dick books are short!

And I, too, love Wally Lamb.


message 25: by Zaz (new)

Zaz | 2978 comments I think Neuromancer can be a difficult/tedious read if you're not really into scifi. On my side, I prefer low scifi (more character driven and with less technical details), than hard scifi. Things like Ender's Game, the Chaos Walking trilogy or the Wayfarers series were very pleasant to read, without the boring side.
I haven't read (R)evolution but regarding the reviews, I won't touch it :p

LOL, I saw your review of Neuromancer after I posted and thought NOPE- if you didn't like it theres no way I will, although we seemed to be at polar ends with All That is Solid Melts into Air ;-). Same with (R)evolution, that one seemed to bomb for everyone. I'm not even sure where I got them, I think they were Kindle first selections and I was trying to branch out. I never read my Kindle Firsts.

I have The Knife of Never Letting Go on my plan for this year and I'm considering Enders Game (was my first thought for the category) in place of Oryx and Crake which is already on another reading plan I haven't started. I'll have to look into Wayfarers, I think I was looking at one last night somewhere here. Is there a new one coming out? Something about Sugar in the title?

Thanks for the recommendations :-)
Enders Game sounds really good. I also just realized I have had The Sparrow sitting on my shelf for many many years unread, so thats a possibility as well.

(oops...I was thinking of Wayward Children series ....) Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3) by Seanan McGuire


message 27: by Zaz (new)

Zaz | 2978 comments Haha, yes, we have different opinions about All That is Solid. I'm not a big fan of slow paces but the main problem was that the author's writing didn't work with me.

Ender is a smooth read, it's fast paced and I found it compelling. The Knife is also a quick read, more childish, but with good ideas anyway.
For Wayfarers, there is one new book each year, but you probably saw the series in plans as several people used The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet for the Women prize. Wayward is another I really enjoy, but it's fantasy this time :)

I like sci-fi and recommend P. K. Dick's novels. They are intriguing and short! "Do Androids Dream..." is a good one to start with. Other SF you might try: The Day of the Triffids, The Left Hand of Darkness, The Affinities or Zero K. One of my favorites is The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories! You have it listed for #51 but it's also Sci-fi. I hope you read it - it's so good!

Marina H | 1314 comments Funny, I was searching for a book related to a word born same year as me and AIDS virus was one of the words. I found this book I've never heard of before: Tell the Wolves I'm Home and less than five minutes after I see it on your popsugar list.
Maybe it's just me, but I always think it's funny when things like that happen.
I hope you'll get to read it and we can share thougths.
