Around The Stack In How Many Ways… The Choices.

So, after chatting to Emma, the co-host of the “Around The Stack” challenge, it’s time to choose which books I’m hoping to read for the challenge. I’m aiming to go for all twenty genres on the list below and on the 2012 challenge page. I’m going to try to use my TBR pile to fuel the challenge, rather than buying new ones (tut-tut Emma). Anyway, without further ado*. The ones left blank are stumping me currently, if you have any suggestions, feel free to use the comments and let me know.

  1. Crime/Mystery – 
  2. Thriller – The Raw Shark Texts by Stephen Hall
  3. Romance – The Marriage Plot by Jeffery Eugenides
  4. Fantasy – Advent by James Treadwell
  5. Sci-Fi – 
  6. Literary – Midnight’s Children by Salmon Rushdie
  7. Young Adult – Hollow Pike by James Dawson
  8. Historical Fiction – Empire Of Silver by Conn Iggulden
  9. Dystopian – Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
  10. Steampunk – 
  11. Comedy/Black Comedy – Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
  12. Horror/Ghost Story – Small Hand by Susan Hill
  13. Adventure – Sanctus by Simon Toyne
  14. War – 
  15. Gothic – The Forbidden by F.R. Tallis
  16. Noir – Demi Monde: Winter by Rod Rees
  17. Drama – Day For Night by Frederick Reiken
  18. Kids – 
  19. Graphic Novel – 
  20. Classic – The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger

*These are, of course, subject to change as books get released, review copies arrive and the TBR extends.

    Let’s see: Steampunk try “Phoenix Rising” by Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris. Sci Fi I say you can’t go past “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card (although you may have already read it). War I have absolutely no idea…the last war book I read was Red Storm Rising (I was 12) Kid’s try Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide To Not Reading by Tommy Greenwald. Graphic Novel have a look at The Arrival by Shaun Tan.

    These look like some solid choices! If you are still looking for suggestions for a graphic novel, one of my all-time favorites is FUN HOME by Alison Bechdel.
