Ganked from a lot of my friends, here's the NPR's Most Popular Sci-Fi & Fantasy novels meme. I voted, and of course am outraged that some of my favorites didn't place very high (or even make the list. WTF where is Paks?!) but I'm pleased that I've read a bunch of these, and today I started the highest ranked book that I hadn't read yet and have always meant to.
I'm cheating. I'm going to bold things I've either read all the way or read all I plan to
. I'm going to italicize those I plan to read
. I'm going to
strike through the occasional Never in my life shall I read this book
Also, I would like to say that I already did this meme once, because I printed off the list as soon as it was released on the website, and marked all the books I'd read.( Collapse )
Wow, I thought I was at 36. Forgot about Xanth. A lot of these books have been on my to-read-someday list anyway (like Dune
), but so many good new books come out every year I hadn't gotten around to a lot of them. I also read much more heavily on the fantasy side than on the science fiction side, and I'm incredibly disappointed that the Coldfire Trilogy by CS Friedman and the Company Wars books by CJ Cherryh didn't make this list. I know Coldfire is science fantasy more than science fiction, but still. *grumps*
