2014 Reading List

I'm aiming to finish at least 50 books this year. Let's see how that goes, shall we?

Click the book titles to go straight to my review where available. Not all have reviews, partly because I don't time to review everything I read, and partly because I only intend to review speculative & historical fiction on this blog.

Diversity in Reading 

I also plan to read consciously - and diversely - this year. That means reading an equal number of male and female authors, and trying more books written by queer and/or non-white authors, or containing queer and/or non-white protagonists. Expect graphs and suchlike at the end of the year!
