      There are 3 new books that you've wanted magically on your shelf this lovely morning, what are they?

      Answered: May 18, 2016

      Well I currently have a reading list I'm going through.


      Book Reading List Challenge

      The List:

      The Lord of the Rings (Actually started with The Hobbit)
      The Kingkiller Chronicles (Skipped to await its completion)
      1984
      Ender's Game (Read the entire series dealing with Ender)

      The Thrawn Trilogy (Skipped since it is no longer canon)
      World War Z
      Stardust
      Starship Troopers
      The Princess Bride

      The Dune Chronicles
      Fahrenheit 451
      American Gods
      The Time Traveler's Wife
      A Song of Fire and Ice
      Journey to the Center of the Earth
      The Once and Future King


      I'm currently on Fahrenheit 451. So the next three I would need would be "American Gods", "Journey to the Center of the Earth, & "The Once and Future King".

      Well I finished Children of Dune last week. The ending was okay and I like the Trilogy overall with Dune being my favorite. It got too political (which I generally like) by the end of the series and became less interesting. Dune is definitely a book that should be ready by any SciFi or Fantasy fan.


      The List:


      The Lord of the Rings (Actually started with The Hobbit)
      The Kingkiller Chronicles (Skipped to await its completion)
      1984
      Ender's Game (Read the entire series dealing with Ender)

      The Thrawn Trilogy (Skipped since it is no longer canon)
      World War Z
      Stardust
      Starship Troopers
      The Princess Bride

      The Dune Chronicles
      Fahrenheit 451
      American Gods
      The Time Traveler's Wife
      A Song of Fire and Ice
      Journey to the Center of the Earth
      The Once and Future King


      So now it's on to Fahrenheit 451. Thoughts on the list or this book?

      It's been a while since I talked about this. Some of you may even be new enough that you have no idea what I'm talking about.


      Well a while back NPR made a list.


      Your Picks: Top 100 Science-Fiction, Fantasy Books

      So I picked some books from that and had everyone vote on the best ones that I should read. I had a ton from the list that I had already ready, but some that I had meant to and just never did. I figured this was a good way to make that happen.


      I took them in order of the voting for reading order (unless otherwise noted)


      The Lord of the Rings (Actually started with The Hobbit)
      The Kingkiller Chronicles (Skipped to await its completion)
      1984
      Ender's Game (Read the entire series dealing with Ender)

      The Thrawn Trilogy (Skipped since it is no longer canon)
      World War Z
      Stardust
      Starship Troopers
      The Princess Bride

      The Dune Chronicles (In Process)
      Fahrenheit 451
      American Gods
      The Time Traveler's Wife
      A Song of Fire and Ice
      Journey to the Center of the Earth
      The Once and Future King



      I have been on Chidlren of Dune for far too long. I even stopped reading it for a while. I went through the fist two Dune book super quick. I just lost interest in this one halfway through. So I need to push through this one so I can get on to 451.

        Here is what I was talking about before:

        Memories

        Instead of Desmond Miles, the modern day will be centered around the players themselves who act as 'research analysts' working for Abstergo Entertainment and reliving the memories of Edward Kenway through the Animus, by using Desmond's DNA.

        Really? That sounds weird but with Miles dead I guess that's the logical place for them to go with it. I don't remember the exact name used in the trailer but wasn't the Assassin's last name Kenway? I guess it's either Connor's son or a brother he didn't know about.

      • monopoly_j Elevator's not worthy.

        3 years ago

        I too am wary. ACIII was okay but left me underwhelmed. The pirate thing could be cool and the ship battles were fun but could easily be overdone. I saw something though that indicated you are working for Abstergo Entertainment or something like that. It sounded interesting.

      • VladakDracon

        3 years ago

        What do you think? I'm a little wary of it after ACIII but it still could be good. I'm guessing it's a different team than the one that worked on ACIII since the development cycle for that game was so long and this had to have been started before ACIII launched.

      Maybe you guys will have better luck in 2016. But y'all will need to pick more Christies and Huntsmans rather than Romneys and Ryans. Just sayin'.
