Friday Book Discussion: novels, nonfiction, graphic novels, art books…

A while ago, my friend Helka expressed interest in a possible post about books I had on my to purchase and to read list. So, here comes the post, because it took me a while to make the list. This list is a fraction of what I want to read, and doesn’t include any titles that I already possess. The content of my to-read shelf might be material for another post (think Star Wars, The Witcher, Ender’s Game, Book of the Order, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tolkien, Dragon Age, Mistborn Trilogy if you really want a few hints).

I first thought about making just one list, maybe in alphabetical order. Then I realized that I had books of many kinds/genres and that it would just be too cramped if I went for a single list. Since there was no way I put all the books I wish to purchase, I decided to go for 4 titles in each category. So it gives variety in the snippets I offer of my future dream selves, besides all the busy ones I already have (I still want to share some pictures of my work lair at some point, but I need to actually remember to take the pictures!) The books listed aren’t necessarily my most wanted book for each category either, as I tend to have a hard time establishing hierarchies as such.
