#184 Make a list of 100 books I want to read and read them all!

So I just joined the website which made it very easy for me to compile a list of 100 books I want to read. I actually am going to have 110 books on this list and it's because a couple of them are also on my "All TIME 100 novels" list and I just don't think it's fair to myself to have the same book count for two different items on my bucket list. I will link this list on the top of my blog so if a reader ever wants to go back and read what books I have listed they will have easy access to that.

  1. I like that list. Recently, I bought a sci-fi novel but haven't started it yet. From what I understand, there's a blend of history (of a far-off planet) and sci-fi. That's interesting to me.
