Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

io9 best of 2015

io9 best of 2015

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. io9 listed only 34, but one entry is a trilogy, which may double-up as part of the Triumvirate reading challenge. The books cover a wide spectrum of our genre.

This challenge is mainly for me and myself, but join me. Or don't.
