Reading List

Again, I construct another reading list. -_-   (how many has it been? I’m really such a scatterbrain to be doing this all the time OTZ)

[I’ve moved the sticky post here. It’s much more convenient to just edit pages than posts. Or perhaps I just want to try the stick post feature :p]

MANGA

LIGHT NOVEL

  • Legend of the Sun Knight – one of the best if not the best novel I’ve ever read
  • No Hero
  • Kill no More
  • Sugar Apple Fairy Tale
  • Ghost Hunt: Nightmare Dwelling
  • Legendary Moonlight Sculptor
  • Durarara
  • Baccano!
  • 1/2 Prince
  • Female Warrior
  • Shinigamihime no saikon
  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
  • Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Human Doll Contract
  • Kara no Kyoukai
  • No Game No Life

Novels (paperback) – as per our bucket list for 2014, 1 novel/month

January

  • Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (Howl <3)
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (Not a good idea to read at night when you are alone. The illustrations are creepy…  but the story is good)

February

  • Vampires Defanged by Susannah Clements (non-fiction and definitely not a novel, but its a book so it counts >:) )
  • Intelligent Design 101 by H. Wayne House (editor) –  (though I haven’t finished this one)

March

  • The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana by Umberto Eco (I originally planned to read Baudolino by the same author but alas! I can’t find a copy) edit: unfinished

April

  • None

May

  • Contact by Carl Sagan (science-fiction novel by a scientist. made into a film in the 90’s)

June

  • Star Trek: Rings of Time by Greg Cox (2012 novel)

I’ll be adding more to this post as new manga come up on my reading list

Others

I occasionally have impulses in buying all sorts of books. And here are some of the books I bought but haven’t yet read

  • John Grisham (Confession, King of Torts)
  • Metamorphosis by Ovid
  • Carl Sagan (Cosmos, Contact)
  • Stephen Hawking (The Universe in a Nutshell, A Brief History of Time)
  • Agatha Christie (A tad too many since I’m buying any Agatha Christie book I could find)
  • Labyrinth by Kate Mosse
  • Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Maturin
  • Focault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco
  • ..and the list goes on

Regardless of the amount of books I have that I haven’t touched yet, the greed in me for new ones just couldn’t be stopped! Here is a list of the books I am currently looking for. I recommend it to people who likes science books by scientists and authorities in the field

  1. I like your LN reading list. I am a fan of Yu Wo so when I saw that almost a fourth of your list consists of Yu Wo’s stories, I was very delighted. XD
