Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t/Want To Read From X Genre

Top10Tuesday

So this week, I’m going to list the top ten books I can’t believe I haven’t read from fantasy/sci fi. I’m not really too sure about any off the top of my head. Like I’ve read Hunger Games, Harry Potter, A Song of Fire and Ice. So I’ve had to go looking to see what I haven’t read that seems to be a staple, maybe you guys can give me some suggestions.

  1. I’ll say Dune by Hank Hubert, because that’s the “finest, most widely acclaimed and enduring Science Fiction novel of this century”. At least according to the 2nd hand copy I bought last year which is sitting on my shelf. So it’s another book I want to read, but just need to get around doing so.
  2. Discworld by Terry Prachett, it is such a huge cornerstone series, that I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. I own the first book, but as above, I haven’t read it.
  3. Fahrenheit 451, again another classic, large name (though I guess that’s the point with this list). And again it’s sitting on my shelf!
  4. His Dark Materials, guess what! I own one of these books as well, but it’s the third in the series, whatever.
  5. The Princess Bride by William Goldman. This is purely on here because Goodreads had it on a list, and it was a book that I recognised, but haven’t read.
  6. Anything of Stephen King! I’m really surprised I haven’t gotten around to reading anything of his yet. I do own Under the Dome because of the TV show though.
  7. Or anything of Robin Hobb’s, another really big fantasy name.
  8. Or Terry Goodkind, (once again I do have one book of theirs)
  9. Or Ursula K. Le Guin, another huge name
  10. Or Tamora Pierce. So many big name authors I have just not read anything of.

What’s on your list that you can’t believe you haven’t gotten around to reading yet, despite loving that genre? Any other fantasy/sci-fi names/books that should be on my list?
