2019 Reading Challenge List Thread

Welcome to our 10th Annual Reading Challenge!

The Annual Reading Challenge is neither a race, contest, nor an “exclusive club”, anyone can join! This is just a fun activity that some of us have enjoyed doing in the past. Many of us have found reading challenges to be an entertaining way to set goals for ourselves, get ideas for books, and see what others are reading.

This thread is for you to keep a running tally for your chosen challenge. Please state your goals at the top of your post (in the title line if you can), and then start your list in the body of your post. As you read books, edit your post to update your list of books read, or other challenge status.

Please Remember: No discussion posts in this thread. Please use the other thread for that. Non-List posts will be deleted or moved to the other thread.

My goal is to buy fewer books than I read. And so end up with fewer unread books.

I start 2019 with 1014 books on my TBR pile.
Well, an adjusted 1018 thanks to expanding omnibuses

Books removed from TBR

Read and Reading
  1. December 26th: Asimov's SF, January/February 2019 edited by Sheila Williams - £2.49 - 4/5 - 298pp
    Not one of the best. Several stories I thought were a bit weak.
  2. January 3rd: One Enchanted Evening by Anton du Beke - £0.99 - 4/5 - 335pp
    An enjoyable 1936 period romance. One star off for getting the weather wrong.
  3. January 5th: Grantville Gazette #81 edited by Bjorn Hasseler - £3.41 - 4/5 - 168pp
    Perhaps it was me, but not quite as fun as usual.
  4. January 10th: The Sister Paradox by Jack Campbell - £0.99 - 3/5 - 150pp
    OK, but too much of a YA for me, with unrealistic character development.
  5. January 12th: Closer to Home by Mercedes Lackey - £0.79 - 5/5 - 305pp
    Excellent as usual, and a complete story arc, even though in a series.
  6. January 12th: F&SF Jan/Feb 2019 edited by C. C. Finlay - £3.58 - 5/5 - 242pp
    Very good fantasy and SF as usual.
  7. January 14th: Uncompromising Honor by David Weber - £4.69 - 5/5 - 910pp
    A slow start, but it delivers in the end.
  8. January 17th: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - £0.99 - 5/5 - 410pp
    Great fun. I've added his other books to my watch list.
  9. January 20th: The Third Nero by Lindsey Davis - £0.99 - 4/5 - 342pp
    Wrapped up a little too quickly, but fun.
  10. January 22nd: The Monastery Murders by E. M. Powell - £0.99 - 5/5 - 250pp
    An excellent 12th century mystery.
  11. January 24th: The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer - £1.20 - 5/5 - 271pp
    Another excellent regency romance.
  12. January 25th: To Love and be Wise by Josephine Tey - £0.99 - 5/5 - 182pp
    Wonderful detective story. Absolutely excellent.
  13. January 29th: The Furthest Station by Ben Aaronovitch - £0.99 - 5/5 - 92pp
    Good smaller story in the PC Grant universe.
  14. January 31st: The Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell - £0.99 - 5/5 - 262pp
    Nicely sliding into the gaps in history.
  15. February 3rd: The Player of Games by Iain M. Banks - £0.99 - 5/5 - 279pp
    Very good indeed. Most enjoyable.
  16. February 8th: Knife's Children by Lois McMaster Bujold - £3.05 - 5/5 - 137pp
    An excellent side story.
  17. February 9th: Galaxy's Edge #1 edited by Mike Resnick - £0.41 - 4/5 - 197pp
    Good new stories and excellent reprints.
  18. February 11th: Paddington's Finest Hour by Michael Bond - £0.99 - 3/5 - 72pp
    An odd mixture of old and new that don't quite gel. Not as good as the early books, especially with the call backs to previous similar stories.
  19. February 12th: Last Seen Wearing by Colin Dexter - £0.50 - 4/5 - 263pp
    Good, but still has a way to go to be great. Not quite to Morse we know yet.
  20. February 16th: Grumbles from the Grave by Robert A. Heinlein - £3.33 - 3/5 - 249pp
    Interesting, but I didn't like the way the leters had been edited and arranged.
  21. February 19th: Paddington at Work by Michael Bond - £0.99 - 4/5 - 71pp
    Much better than the later one.
  22. February 25th: The Holy Thief by Ellis Peters - £0.99 - 5/5 - 238pp
    Another splendid tale
  23. February 25th: Asimov's SF, March/April 2019 edited by Sheila Williams - £2.49 - 5/5 - 310pp
    Most enjoyable.
  24. February 27th: The Demons of Paris by Eric Flint et al. - £1.61 - 4/5 - 297pp
    Fun, and a quick read, but not as brilliant as I'd hoped.
  25. March 4th: Grantville Gazette #82 edited by Bjorn Hasseler - £3.43 - 5/5 - 157pp
    Splendid fun as usual. And two excellent SF stories in the 'annex'.
  26. March 6th: The Real James Herriot by Jim Wight - £0.99 - 4/5 - 503pp
    A very good book for content. 4* for style, but worth reading.
  27. March 9th: Analog SFF, March/April 2019 edited by Trevor Quachri - £2.49 - 5/5 - 344pp
    Up to the usual standard.
  28. March 11th: The Man in the Queue by Josephine Tey - £1.99 - 4/5 - 207pp
    A little uneven, but overall, very good. Showing its age in parts.
  29. March 16th: The Golden One by Elizabeth Peters - £0.84 - 5/5 - 388pp
    Splendid, as usual.
  30. March 24th: The Sword Song by Bernard Cornwell - £0.99 - 5/5 - 260pp
    Excellent, as usual
  31. March 29th: The Angel of Death by Paul Doherty - £0.99 - 3/5 - 138pp
    OK, but mentioning the Dome of St Pauls in 1296 is a rookie's mistake.
  32. March 30th: Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson - £0.90 - 4/5 - 201pp
    An amusing YA fantasy
  33. April 2nd: God is not Great by Christopher Hitchens - £1.19 - 2/5 - 295pp
    Dull for those who agree with him, and won't convince others. Abandoned.
  34. April 4th: Krondor: Tear of the Gods by Raymond E. Feist - £4.04 - 5/5 - 261pp
    Splendid fantasy fun. Seeing how characters first met.
  35. April 5th: the Spend Game by Jonathan Gash - £0.99 - 4/5 - 197pp
    Lovejoy being Lovejoy - violent and self-deceiving.
  36. April 7th: The Hunt for the Red Cardinal by Bradley Sinor - £1.59 - 2/5 - 274pp
    Not up to the standard of most of the other Ring of Fire books. Poor plotting, poor characters, poor story pacing. A shame.
  37. April 8th: Brother Cadfael's Penance by Ellis Peters - £0.99 - 5/5 - 232pp
    Splendid. Although the murder mystery is the least part of the story.
  38. April 9th: Honored Enemy by Raymond E. Feist - £4.30 - 5/5 - 285pp
    An excellent side tale of the rift wars
  39. April 12th: The Quantum Magician by Derek Kunsken - £1.99 - 4/5 - 363pp
    Good SF, but some plotting seemed to go nowhere.
  40. April 14th: F&SF, March/April 2019 edited by C. C. Finlay - Free - 5/5 - 245pp
    Another excellent issue.
  41. April 20th: Oblivion by Steve White and Charles E. Gannon - £2.80 - 5/5 - 303pp
    Excellent MilSF/Space Opera fun.
  42. April 21st: Julius Katz and Archie by Dave Zeltserman - Free - 5/5 - 204pp
    A most enjoyable murder mystery
  43. April 24th: Asimov's SF, May/June 2019 edited by Sheila Williams - £2.49 - 5/5 - 300pp
    A good issue. I liked all the stories, and some were excellent.
  44. April 26th: Children of the Storm by Elizabeth Peters - £0.84 - 5/5 - 360pp
    Good stuff. Where will the next villain come from?
  45. April 28th: Analog SFF, May/June 2019 edited by Trevor Quachri - £2.49 - 5/5 - 356pp
    Excellent, as usual.
  46. May 7th: Head On by John Scalzi - £0.99 - 5/5 - 220pp
    SF and FBI Procedural. Good stuff.
  47. May 9th: F&SF, May/June 2019 edited by C. C. Finlay - £4.99 - 4/5 - 244pp
    Good, but I didn't enjoy all the stories as much as usual.
  48. May 9th: Grantville Gazette #83 edited by Bjorn Hasseler - £3.63 - 5/5 - 165pp
    Splendid fun as usual. And some excellent SF stories in the 'annex'.
  49. May 14th: The Shield of Time by Poul Anderson - £1.49 - 5/5 - 400pp
    Good time travel adventure.
  50. May 20th: Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz - £0.99 - 5/5 - 280pp
    Another excellent odd adventure
  51. May 22nd: Pandora's Boy by Lindsay Davis - £0.99 - 5/5 - 330pp
    Investigations in ancient Rome. Good stuff.
  52. May 25th: A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey - £1.99 - 4/5 - 201pp
    Splendid, except for the racism of the time.
  53. May 27th: Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by C. S. Forester - £0.33 - 4/5 - 188pp
    Very good, but no great exploits yet
  54. May 30th: Contact by Carl Sagan - £0.99 - 3/5 - 365pp
    OK, but a bit waffly
  55. June 2nd: Lieutenant Hornblower by C. S. Forester - £0.33 - 4/5 - 200pp
    Very good, but not as good as it gets later
  56. June 4th: Hornblower and the Hotspur by C. S. Forester - £0.33 - 5/5 - 255pp
    And here we finally get the inner Hornblower.
  57. June 5th: The Zig Zag Girl by Elly Griffiths - £0.99 - 4/5 - 233pp
    An interesting mystery set in post-WWII England.
  58. June 7th: Gamble by Felix Francis - £0.99 - 5/5 - 255pp
    A very pleasant surprise. A most enjoyable racing-related thriller.
  59. June 8th: Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb - £1.99 - 5/5 - 742pp
    A splendid fantasy. Most enjoyable.
  60. June 10th: Mad Ship by Robin Hobb - £1.99 - 5/5 - 744pp
    Excellent, but clearly the middle of a trilogy, so straight on to...
  61. June 13th: Ship of Destiny by Robin Hobb - £1.99 - 5/5 - 742pp
    A satisfying ending to the trilogy
  62. June 18th: The History of the Hobbit by John Rateliff - £1.99 - 5/5 - 1149pp
    Fascinating analysis and original material carefully transcribed.
  63. July 6th: Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer - £1.99 - 4/5 - 238pp
    Fun stuff, but even for a children's book, it underplays the consequences of events.
  64. July 7th: Asimov's SF, July/August 2019 edited by Sheila Williams - £2.49 - 5/5 - 311pp
    Another good selection of stories. Not a duff one there.
  65. July 8th: A Different Kind of Evil by Andrew Wilson - £0.99 - 5/5 - 292pp
    A nice mystery inserted into Agatha Christie's life.
  66. July 12th: A Fistful of Elven Gold by Alex Stewart - £1.35 - 3/5 - 296pp
    OK, but just an average readable fantasy world with no real world-building of its own
  67. July 14th: Grantville Gazette #84 edited by Bjorn Hasseler - £3.61 - 4/5 - 154pp
    Still fun, although I found one story had an ending that was too good to be true. And the issues seem to be getting shorter, which is bad since they're one of my most expensive purchases.
  68. July 16th: Crisis by Felix Francis - £0.99 - 5/5 - 270pp
    Great stuff. I shall certainly be looking out for the rest.
  69. July 18th: Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks - £0.99 - 3/5 - 422pp
    Very good, but not compelling, and a bit depressing.
  70. July 19th: Murder in LaMut by Raymond E. Feist - £4.30 - 4/5 - 255pp
    An enjoyable murder mystery side adventure.
  71. July 21st: The Orphans of Raspay by Lois MvMaster Bujold - £2.49 - 5/5 - 120pp
    Brilliant, as expected
  72. July 24th: Monster Hunter Siege by Larry Correia - £1.93 - 4/5 - 354pp
    Getting unnecessarily messianic
  73. July 27th: Monster Hunter Memoirs: Sinners by John Ringo and Larry Correia - £3.87 - 4/5 - 262pp
    OK, but a bit repetitive. I suspect the trilogy would have been better as a single novel.
  74. July 31st: Analog SFF, July/August 2019 edited by Trevor Quachri - £2.49 - 4/5 - 351pp
    Pretty good. But there were one or two that were just OK.
  75. August 5th: The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie - £0.99 - 4/5 - 231pp
    I love the universe. I understand why it's written the way it is. But making the reader appear to be one of the characters in the story just didn't really work for me. I didn't like being constantly told what I did in the story.
  76. August 8th: Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints by John Ringo and Larry Correia - £3.00 - 4/5 - 262pp
    Not a bad conclusion, but the ending felt a bit rushed.
  77. August 9th: Smoke and Mirrors by Elly Griffiths - £0.99 - 5/5 - 224pp
    Another excellent mystery set in post-war Brighton
  78. August 12th: Marque of Caine by Charles E. Gannon - £3.00 - 3/5 - 509pp
    OK, but not compelling. I think I'll drop this series.
  79. August 18th: When Marnie Was There by Joan G Robinson - £0.99 - 5/5 - 224pp
    What a splendid novel. Highly recommended.
  80. August 19th: F&SF, July/August 2019 edited by C. C. Finlay - £5.00 - 4/5 - 251pp
    There were a couple of stories I didn't like this month, so just 4/5
  81. August 19th: The Stranger from the Sea by Winston Graham - £0.99 - 5/5 - 360pp
    Fun melodrama, set ten years after the last book.
  82. August 23rd: The Volga Rules by Eric Flint et al. - £2.89 - 5/5 - 335pp
    Fun in 1630s Russia. Nice advances of main plot points.
  83. August 26th: The Serpent on the Crown by Elizabeth Peters - £0.84 - 5/5 - 280pp
    The usual fun in early 20th century Egypt.
  84. August 29th: the Blood Card by Elly Griffiths - £0.99 - 5/5 - 250pp
    Excellent mystery with Max and Edgar
  85. August 31st: The Burning Land by Bernard Cornwell - £1.99 - 5/5 - 260pp
    Excellent historical fiction with our fictional hero of the days of King Alfred.
  86. September 3rd: Grantville Gazette #85 edited by Bjorn Hasseler - £3.61 - 4/5 - 154pp
    OK, but short. And less Grantville content than expected.
  87. September 5th: Analog SFF Sep-Oct 2019 edited by Trevor Quachri - £2.49 - 5/5 - 344pp
    Back on form. Good stories throughout.
  88. September 7th: Asimov's SF edited by Sheila Williams - £2.49 -5/5 - 313pp
    Also a good month for Asimov's. Most enjoyable.
  89. September 10th: The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey - £0.99 - 5/5 - 237pp
    Good stuff, for once a mystery, not a murder mystery!
  90. September 11th: F&SF, Sep/Oct 2019 edited by C. C. Finlay - £5.00 - 5/5 - 255pp
    A most satisfactory 70th aniversary issue.
  91. September 13th: Sharpe's Enemy by Bernard Cornwell - £0.99 - 5/5 - 290pp
    Excellent fun Military Historical Fiction.
  92. September 14th: Sharpe's Honour by Bernard Cornwall - £0.99 - 5/5 - 276pp
    Excellent fun Military Historical Fiction.
  93. September 15th: Sharpe's Regiment by Bernard Cornwall - £0.99 - 5/5 - 272pp

    Most enjoyable historical drama
  96. September 21st: The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch - Free - 4/5 - 267pp
    Interesting universe, although not enough made of the moon setting, IMO.
  97. September 23rd: The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn by Colin Dexter - £0.49 - 4/5 - 223pp
    Some of the Morse we know coming through.
  98. September 26th: The Fairy's Tale by F. D. Lee - £0.99 - 3/5 - 329pp
    Got better after a dodgy start. I might look out for the next one.
  99. September 28th: The African Queen by C. S. Forester - £0.99 - 4/5 - 168pp
    Very good indeed, although I wasn't expecting the ending.
  100. October 1st: Tyger Burning by T. C. McCarthy - £1.35 - 3/5 - 296pp
    Decent enough Mil SF.
  101. October 2nd: Paddington takes the Air by Michael Bond - £0.99 - 4/5 - 78pp
    The usual Paddington mishaps, only occasionally cringe-worthy.
  102. October 5th: The Tomb of the Golden Bird by Elizabeth Peters - £0.84 - 5/5 - ???pp
    A most enjoyable finish to the series. Highly recommended.
  103. October 7th: Paddington goes to Town by Michael Bond - £0.99 - 5/5 - 86pp

    And continuing excellent.
  109. October 16th: Hidden Steel by Doranna Durgin - Free - 3/5 - 172pp
    An OK to good Action Romance, but I don't feel to read any more like it.
  110. October 17th: Sandition (unfinished) by Jane Austen - Free - 3/5 - 50pp
    Just introduces the main characters, but no real plot in the completed chapters.
  111. October 20th: Starswarm by Jerry Pournelle - £2.22 - 4/5 - 296pp
    A fun YA SF story.
  112. October 21st: Cybill Disobedience By Cybill Shepherd - Free - 3/5 - 267pp
    Competent and readable celebrity autobiography.
  113. October 24th: Sharpe's Christmas by Bernard Cornwell - £0.99 - 5/5 - 72pp

    An amusing early short story.
  119. November 6th: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J K Rowling - £5.52 - 5/5 - 671pp (re-read)

    Another good issue.

  128. December 3rd: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North - £0.99 - 4/5 - ???pp
    Splendid while being read, but afterwards all the innumerable plot holes and unexamined possibilities start to occur. SF by a non SF writer?

I've made a major change in my goals. Fortunately, a topic tugged at me in time for me to shift. Six books in ancient history, six books in German history from 1918 - 1945, with ancillary books I'll also track. I'll read two of the colossal novels that have lingered on my TBR for years. And I'll get my Goodreads Want-to-Read list down to 25 titles. My hope is that limited goals can be achieved and still leave me room to follow my bent as it bends.

I set a benchmark for total books each year of 120. I don't consider it a goal.

I'm linking to my Goodreads pages because I'm lazy.

Ah, I see several have mentioned the New Leaf Book Club. I read all the selections last year and my goal this year is to do the same.

The goal this year is similar to last year's, 120 books read (or abandoned), with a stretch goal of 160 books. This includes audio books. Individual short stories will be recorded, but not counted towards that goal until I've got several I can combine. Longer "short" works (~100 pages or so) will be counted as a full book, though if I have two of them back to back, I'll tend to count them as a single book.

Secondary goal is to update this list no less often than once a week. I managed that until the summer last year, but then that completely fell apart for a bit, before I got it back on track. It's really easy to lose track or get so far behind that one abandons the attempt. One trick is to update my "Reason for Editing" each time to show the last book(s) purchased and recorded. This helps me keep track even if it's been a few days since the last edit.

This year, a new tertiary goal -- to read at least 10 of the 12 books in the New Leaf Book Club and actively participate in the discussion.
