I’ve been in a scifi book club for a few years now, and it’s been lots of fun. It stretched me in good ways and I made some great friends. We’ve done approximately one book per month, and I’ve occasionally read something unrelated in the same month.

I’m taking a cycle off though, because there are some things I need to get read. This post is partly simply to get them written down so I don’t forget.

The Percy Jackson Series
My kids fell in love with this about a year ago and have read them all, some more than once. I haven’t been super excited about it, but they asked me to read them, and I want to take part in something they love. I’ve read the first one now, and it’s pretty good. I’m interested to see where they go with it.
The Hunger Games
My eldest read this first, and then I did, and she and I watched the movie together. I found it quite gripping. She’s since read the sequels and I need to do that as well.
The Dark Is Rising Sequence
I generally read this series every year starting in the fall and ending in the spring. The second book takes place around Christmas, and I try to line up the reading around that time.
Cryptonomicon
I tend to read this every few years, and it’s about that time. If you haven’t read it I highly recommend it.
The Deed Of Paksenarrion
Even though I read this about 6 months ago I’ll probably read it again once everything else is done.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Update: I just bought The Three Investigators number 1, which is the first book I ever read that made me fall in love with reading. Now my kids will read it. 🙂

  1. I really liked The Hunger Games. Cryptonomicon was pretty good. I’m currently in book 2 of The Deed Of Paksenarrion, which I’m reading per your recommendation.
