Echo...echo...echo...echo

It's been a nice break. But I've been thinking more and more about getting a few reviews out of my system.

This is the back-log of books I have sitting on my desk to review right now, full of dog-ears and sticky notes:
Hyperion, Dan Simmons

Hunter of Worlds, C. J. Cherryh

Able One, Ben Bova

Marsbound, Joe Haldeman

Sabriel, Garth Nix

Sphere, Michael Crichton

Doomsday Book, Connie Willis

Westmark, Lloyd Alexander

Divergent, Veronica Roth
Anyone wanna offer a vote as to which couple o' books I should tackle first?

  1. Hyperion....then Sabriel....then Divergent (I need to know if I should read this series).

    1. Thanks for the vote! A quick thought about Divergent: comparable to Hunger Games for me, but without being quite the page-turner. In other words, I'd skip it, unless you'd like to read it and then see the movie that is currently under production for the fun of comparing stories across different mediums.

  3. I spotted Sabriel and knew I had something you had read... someone off Bookcrossing had given me the trilogy in 2008 and I read Sabriel and never got to finish the other two... now, you've reminded me to finish them off.

    But! I'm halfway through 'The Dark Tower' Series of Stephen King's ... decisions, decisions! Who to read first! Hmmmmmm! :P

  4. I HATED Sabriel but I liked the sequel. I haven't read the last one yet, but I will. I've been meaning to read Hyperion for a long time. i read The terror and loved it. Looking forward to hearing what you thought of them.

  5. I know you posted this in April, but I had to weigh in on Sabriel in case you were still holding off on it. I loved the Abhorsen trilogy. And I just now found this blog so I haven't read the archives, but I'd recommend Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy.

    1. I've actually read it a couple times, now. It's got its faults, but I look forward to reading it along with my daughter. I've heard stuff about Patrick Ness, but haven't tried him yet. Thanks for the recommendation!
