Books on my List

I have already listed the books I read in 2014. My goal was to read atleast 20 , but till now I could manage just 14.
Here’s a new list of books I prepared to be completed. Wow I sound so focused!!

A song of Ice and Fire series – George R R Martin

I couldn’t watch the popular TV drama A Game of Throne, which is based on the book. Too violent and visually stressful for me. But I would love to read the series. Infact I have already started with the first book.


Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers – Grant Naylor
A comedy sci-fi novel, which is lying on my wattpad for the past one year.


PostMortem – Patricia Cornwell 
Impressed by Patricia’s thrilling storytelling, I want to read the first book that she authored.


The Blood of Olympus – Rick Riorden
Final book in the series of The Heroes of Olympus

Kane Chronicles – Rick Riorden
The fantasy world created by Rick Riorden is compelling, so much that I want to read other series authored by him.

And the Mountains Echoed – Khaled Housseini
I know many have already finished reading it, I might be the only one still struggling to fit it in between other novels.

The Bell Jar – Sylvia Path
 Her poetry is thought proving, written with such powerful conviction. I wonder what her book has to offer.
 
The Day of the Jackal – Frederick Forsyth 
This would be the first book I would read written by the author.

The Time Traveller’s wife – Audrey Niffenegger
All the booklovers out there, please don’t kill me when I say that this curious cat had already read the storyline in wiki. (I could hear a collective gasp). So now I am even more intrigued to read the book, atleast before watching the movie.
The fault in our stars – John Green
The whole world is crying buckets after watching the movie. Almost every teenage girl out here is carrying this book. The song is absolutely beautiful. So yeah I can’t be any more motivated to read the book.

  1. Some interesting books there. I've read some of them, and I particularly loved The Time Traveller's Wife and The Bell Jar. And the GoT books are exciting, of course. πŸ™‚
    I've started keeping track of the books I read only from Jan 2014 onwards. And since then I've managed to read 35 books so far – hey, it's been my sabbatical year! The last few years of working kept me so busy that I would feel too fatigued mentally to pick up books – something a ten-year old me couldn't have imagined in her wildest nightmares. I'm determined to keep making time for books even after I get back to work, which would be soon.

  2. Game of Thrones is simply brilliant!
    Day of the Jackal is a classic if you ask me – one of Forsyth's best works.
    Time Traveller's wife is superb too..
    Oh and PostMortem is simply brilliant and chilling. I love Patricia Cornwell's narrative.

    I am not a huge fan of The fault in our stars for various reasons…

    And I have made a note of the rest of the books to read! πŸ˜€
