Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

NPR Best SFF

NPR Best SFF

This challenge focuses on NPR's lists of best science fiction and fantasy.

Suggested rules:

  1. You can mix and match lists.
  2. You must read the specific book or series mentioned on the list, not just any book by the author. However, you can read any book within that series i.e. if you've already started the series you can use the third book for the challenge.
  3. You can count all the books in a series that is on the list.
  4. Only books read within the time frame of the challenge count. You cannot include books you read prior to the challenge start date. Re-reads are fine, though.

NPR: Top 100 Science-Fiction, Fantasy Books (This list is featured on WWEnd and includes a lot of older publications.)

50 Favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books of the Past Decade (This list has more recent publications.)

And NPR may be releasing another related list later in 2022.
