My sci fi/fantasy book club

January 27, 2015 2015, Top Ten Tuesday 16


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I take part in when I can think up answers! It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with!

This week I get to pretend I have a sci fi/fantasy book club. And I’ve chosen the books the members are reading for 2015.

The members are reading books all written by women authors this year. I chose books I haven’t read (except for Lathe of Heaven which I read years ago). I have a mix of older and newer books as well as fantasy and science fiction.

    I love your “pretend” book club list! I totally want to read the Elizabeth Moon, and re-read the Bujold (I read it straight after the Vorkosigan books, so suspect it suffered from an expectations thing).

    I’d probably have something by Elizabeth Bear in my list, just because I’ve been meaning to read her for AGES.

      Thanks, Li! I really got into figuring out books for it…lol And I haven’t ready any of the Bujold series and, in fact, am behind in the Vorkosigan books. I did think of Elizabeth Bear…I haven’t read her and have meant to, but I couldn’t decide which book and since I had enough others she got cut!
