A New Reading Order

With half of my books still on a boat somewhere on the Pacific and a good number of my books sold, I have to redo my reading order. But since I have new books, why not start with those? For these, I’m going to go by feeling (not necessarily in order of how good I think it’ll be) while alternating between fantasy and science fiction. So, here’s my new reading order:

  1. Redemption Ark, by Alastair Reynolds (in progress)
  2. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, by N. K. Jemisin
  3. The Martian, by Andy Weir
  4. Theft of Swords, by Michael J. Sullivan
  5. Consider Phlebas, by Iain M. Banks
  6. Mistborn: The Final Empire, by Brandon Sanderson
  7. The Player of Games, by Iain M. Banks
  8. The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss
  9. Use of Weapons, by Iain M. Banks
  10. The Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson

Okay, so the last book in this list is one of the highest rated fantasy books on Goodreads. Maybe I just want to save the best for last? After that book, I’m not sure what I’ll read. I’ll have to see what I have when the rest of my books arrive, and go from there. I have to rebuild my library!

What do you think of the order I chose?

New Books Have Arrived

For the first time in quite some time, I got new books! Here they are:

These are all highly rated books on Goodreads or books I’ve been wanting to get for a long time. Five fantasy and four science fiction. They are:

  • Consider Phlebas, The Player of Games, and Use of Weapons, by Iain M. Banks.

  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Nice to have these books in my collection now. I look forward to reading them all.
