Challenge Sign Up: Flights of Fantasy
So Flights of Fantasy - hosted by Alexa Loves Books and Hello, Chelly - is perfect. The challenge focuses on reading fantasy, which is one of my favourite genres, and the number of books we set is entirely up to us.
I'm setting myself the challenge of reading 15 fantasy books in 2015. And while I don't want to set myself a list of 15 (because that guarantees I won't read those books) I would like to at least attempt to do the following:
- Reread Throne of Glass and read Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (preferably before Queen of Shadows is published)
- Finish reading A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin (preferably before series 5 of Game of Thrones starts - I have this in my desk at work and read it during lunch, so I should be able to do this)
- Read Clariel by Garth Nix, and possibly reread The Abhorsen Trilogy (one of my favourites) as well
- Read at least one book by these authors, many of whom are sitting there on my shelf mocking me (the books, not the authors): Leigh Bardugo, Scott Lynch, Patrick Rothfuss
There are numerous other books that I have on my shelf, and there are some rereads I want to do, but I think the above is enough to be going on with. I'll add to this post and to my 2015 Challenges pageas I read/review/update.
