Hi, I am Bryan and have been reading a hundred books a year or more for the last 12 years.
Last year I managed 108 books, an average of 478 pages but would like to read a 120 books or more this year.
I read mainly modern fiction, a few classics and fantasy.
Good luck to all of us this year !

Not sure why I have left this thread for so long because I am still reading, 39 books so far.

4. Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie, grimdark fantasy, 2nd in First Law trilogy.

5. Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy, gripping story of reintroducing wolves to rural Scotland, but domestic violence warning.

6. The Conference of Birds by Ransom Riggs, final book in the Miss Peregrine series.

13. Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie, true Grimdark fantasy.

14. The Book of Form and Emptiness by Ruth Ozeki, fiction with Buddhist perspectives.

15. Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames, I seem to be one of the few who find this and the earlier Kings of the Wild as plenty of action, some humour, but little substance.

31. Sidewinders by Robert V. S. Redick.

Second in the Fire Sacraments epic fantasy series, good read and looking forward to the next instalment.

32. The Outlaws Scarlett & Browne by Jonathan Stroud.

First novel in Stroud's new fantasy series for young adults (and oldies), just as good as his other series Bartimaeus and Lockwood & Co. Next book published soon.

33. The Truth by Terry Pratchett.

Another reread and always enjoyable to visit the Discworld !
