I like reading io9. We share similar taste.

Hence I want to read all of the outstanding books they have highlighted as best of 2015 in this post: The Very Best Science Fiction And Fantasy Books Of 2015.

The challenge runs till June of 2017, so ample time to get through the 36 books. In reality io9 listed only 34, but one entry is a trilogy, which may double-up as part of the Triumvirate reading challenge. In addition "Nemesis: (the fifth book of The Expanse) is also listed, but let's assume most people have read the prequels and there is no need to count the previous four for this challenge.

This challenge is mainly for me and myself, but anyone can join me. Or not.

In the end, io9 chose a wide spectrum of sub-genres, and they are worth reading just for that fact alone.

Cool list! I've already read six of the books, have another six in the TBR pile for this year and found at least seven more that look interesting that I wouldn't mind reading. I'm not sure that I can get through the whole list by June, but I can at least try for part of it.

I think it may well be a bridge to far for me too!! I'm having a real battle finding 6 of the books. All sorts of license issues and the like. At least I've managed to obtain a lot of them as audiobooks. 'm giving it a go. At the very least, as host, I can extend the deadline

While I found Mort(e) not to my taste, the audiobook narration was fantastic. The narrator really kept me in it.
