(Y-11) The epic 100 and the 3,000 pages

Last year I set out to have some epic years of reading, that is to read all of those fantasy novels I was so eager to go through but haven’t got around to doing so.

So, I compiled a list of 100 novels that I was just burning to read.

As you would see in the list below, there are a few series that are true classics, and if you love fantasy you most definitely must read, but there is also some of the new breeds of fantasy writers that are taking this beloved genre by storm.

The red text represents books I have already read.

The blue text represents the book I am currently reading.

So far I have read 26 of 100 books, and my total of pages is 11,048 of the 53,459 pages all of these books sum up.

For the Christmas break I have big plans, first is to read a couple of books from The Malazan Book of the Fallen and to finish Mark Lawrence’s Broken Empire series.

In other news, yesterday I reached another milestone of this year of reading, a total of 3,000 pages.

As I planned for yesterday, I read a couple of issues from the newly published Sandman Universe spin-off series, on this journey I was in good company, firstly by great magician Tim Hunter and secondly by the prince of Darkness himself, the morning star, Lucifer.

These are two great books, and you should check them out, but for my taste, I was more intrigued by the Lucifer series.

I am still a little behind schedule with my reading but giving the circumstances I have achieved more than expected.

For today, I plan to work on The Gardens of the Moon for a little bit, and also to read a graphic novel I purchased a while back, Un samurái ve el amanecer en Acapulco, by Mexican writer Álvaro Enrigue and Spanish illustrator Sonia Pulido.
