My Reading in 2017

I forgot to share the link to my latest Ten Great Science Fiction Books post at Science Book A Day, which is something I’ve been doing annually for a few years now. It is unusually contemporary compared to my previous lists, but full of lots of good stuff if you’re looking for recommendations.

Goodreads says I read 35 books in 2017 and WordPress says I wrote 21 posts. Other than the Sharke frenzy earlier this year, it’s been a slow year reading-wise here at FC2M and I don’t expect that to change soon. My posts will likely continue to be infrequent, but, hopefully, more worthwhile when they do happen.

I’m currently reading through the past year’s National Book Award shortlist. They are more Couch than Moon-type books, but it’s been a nice change of pace. I hope to write up my thoughts on them in the coming months.

In reading for the new year, I just completed a couple of other books. Maybe I’ll have something to say about them in the near-to-not-so-near future? Maybe?

I’m on the final day of winter break, so while my head is refreshed and I have lots (LOTS!) of ideas and things I want to read and write about, I know the coming semester is about send me back into another tailspin of Other More Important Things and I’ll forget I even have a blog again.

So hello, *waves*, and I’ll see you next time I come up for air and decide to step into your feed again.

    I enjoyed reading your Ten Great Science Fiction Books list. I look forward to any and all book reviews — which might (hopefully!) be coming in this new year.

    You have great taste in fiction! (He says, having read 5 out of your 10 and with 2 more in the TBR pile.) The only one not on my radar is the Sun Yung Shin, which sounds amazing.

    I too enjoyed your science fiction book-list! I’m obviously new to WordPress, but I found your blog quite by happen-stance today, and I’ve read a bit of it. No, I haven’t read it from cover to cover, but I appreciate the work you’ve put in. May I add your URL to my blog-roll? I’d count it a privilege.
