2018 is almost over and I have few trips planned for end of this month and next month so I will not be blogging much. I was looking through my TBR when I realized there were some backlist books that I really wanted to get to as soon as possible. This list will be part of my TBR for next year, 2019.
Here are the ten books that I want to read asap. Let me know if you loved any of these and would like me to prioritize them over others.
1. Too Like The Lightning by Ada Palmer – I tried reading the ecopy and got bored after reading few pages so did not buy the book. But then I met this author in Worldcon and heard her speak in panels and award ceremony. I felt she was an intelligent woman and also well read. I liked her so much that I ended up buying a copy of her book after meeting her.
2. Downbelow Station by C J Cherryh – I wanted to read this book in 2018 but could not. I want to read something by this author soon. I heard she is great at writing alien stories.
3. Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold – I own first 3 parts of this massive series. This was also part of my 2018 TBR but got pushed to next year because of lack of time. I tried listening to it on audiobook but the narrator made it sound boring. I want to give the physical copy a try.
4. Kindred by Octavia E Butler – I will try to read this book in december but looking at how I have planned too many things for december, I will likely read it in 2019. Another author that I have been meaning to read for quite sometime now.
5. Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie – I tried reading this book multiple times and never got drawn into the story for some reason. I will give it another shot next year when I am in a good mood.
6. The Player of Games by Iain M Banks – I still have not read this famous series. What is wrong with me?! This is on top of my TBR for next year.
7. Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky – This was part of my november TBR but I will not be able to read it this year. So pushing it to 2019. I am most excited about reading this book.
8. Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse – Another author I met in Worldcon and loved listening to her talk. Her Hugo award winning speech made me want to pick this book asap.
9. The Power by Naomi Alderman – I loved the premise of this book and I have a feeling I will like it. I tried listening to the audiobook and hated the narrator. I want to try the physical book soon.
10. The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu – A book that has been on my TBR for last 2-3 yrs I guess and still have not read it. I wanted to read it this year too but did not. I am definitely reading it next year.
What is on your TBR?
