Look what I've got! A shiny new bingo card with my name on it and everything.
I've not picked all my books yet, but half the fun is deciding what to read and what to (reluctantly) leave for another year.
Seeing as dystopian or post-apocalyptic novels are a favourite subject of mine, I don't think I'll have any problem coming up with something for this one. Maybe a re-read of Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, Nineteen-Eightyfour, The Chrysalids. So many books, only one square.
I got part way through Something Wicked this Way Comes for the 2016 game and it's still sitting unfinished on my Kindle. But I'm probably going to read Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter.
Fear the Drowning Deep
The Kraken Wakes, John Wyndham. Scared the life out of me when I read it as a teen. And perfect for this category.
Living Dead in Dallas, Charlene Harris. It's the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
The Furthest Station, Ben Aaronavitch (a Rivers of London novella).
Relics and Curiosities
Something more lighthearted this year. I've chosen The Story of the Amulet by E Nesbit.
Early Riser, Jasper Fforde. A new Jasper, the only problem I've got is restraining myself from diving straight into it when it arrives.
Iron and Magic, Ilona Andrews. D'uh. What else
Whatever Harry Bosch book I happen to be reading
A Discovery of Witches, Deborah Harkness
Equal Rites, the one and only Terry Pratchett
Shell Game, Sara Paretsky
Murder Most Foul
Tombland, C J Sansom
Magic Triumphs, Ilona Andrews (who else but the Beast Lord?)
Lethal White, Robert Galbraith
The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater
The Canterville Ghost, Oscar Wilde
Be Buried in the Rain, Barbara Michaels
Discount Armageddon, Seanan McGuire
Still to be decided
Terror in a Small Town
Country House Mystery
Baker Street Irregulars
And look who's coming out to play.
