Mogsy’s Spring 2014 Reading List
It’s SPRING! Thank goodness! It has been a long and brutal winter and up until a couple days ago it was still snowing, so let’s hope things finally warm up now.
Anyway, making a reading list at the beginning of each season is kind of a tradition of mine. I find it helps focus my attention on books I’ve been meaning to read for a while, most of them past purchases, and for that reason I’ve stopped including review copies or upcoming books. This also gives me months and hence plenty of time to work through my list.
From the once again dismal completion rate from my Winter Reading List (only 6 out of 15 books, ack! — but I did take February off for Review Copy Cleanup month) I’ve taken a page from Wendy and decided to narrow it down to a handful of titles this time. Okay, maybe two handfuls — a few of these are short! Certainly, a more manageable number of books.
Here they are (and yes, a couple of them are coming back. Like London Falling, I WILL read you, dammit!) Also some notable new additions like Guards! Guards! because I’m ashamed I’ve never read a Terry Pratchett book and I think it’s high time we rectified that. The City Watch books came highly recommended to me by several bloggers, so that’s where I’m going to start. See anything that looks interesting?
