So, I’ve finally decided to organise my Goodreads to-read shelf, and by extension decide what titles I’m going to read for November. The plan going forward is to update my profile at the beginning of every month with the few titles that I plan to read over the next few weeks, rather than having a few hundred books listed as “to read.” With a bit of luck this will help me to focus on what I read. Anywho, here are the books I hope to get through in November.
Daughter of Eden by Chris Beckett – This one I’m already about 100 pages into. We read the previous book in the series, Dark Eden, as part of the Science Fiction book club I go to and I was perhaps more keen than the others to continue the series. Enjoying what I’ve read so far.
The Inferior by Peadar O’Guilín – In the run up to Octocon I read The Call by the same author ahead of getting to see him in person (sad face, we missed him all weekend) and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I saw this in the local library I just had to pick it up and give it a try.
The Power by Naomi Alderman – This is the November read for the Science Fiction & Fantasy book club that I go to. It seems interesting, and my girlfriend (among many others) is enjoying it so fingers crossed I’ll like it too.
The Good People by Hannah Kent – Another November book club read, this time for the more General club. I put this one forward because I wanted to read something set in Ireland and the synopsis seemed pretty cool. Really glad it got picked.
Savant by Nik Abnett – Once again inspired by last month’s Octocon weekend, this book has a very interesting premise. Over the past few weeks it has been calling to me to be read so hopefully I’ll be able to get to it this month.
And there you have it, the five books I hope to get through over the next few weeks. Keep an eye on the sidebar over yonder to see if I can stick to my plans. Or, you know, you could follow me on twitter where Goodreads automatically posts when I finish and rate a book.
