  • Blue Remembered Earth (Poseidon’s Children Book 1), Alastair Reynolds I started to read On The Steel Breeze and decided its been long enough that I need to read the first one again. I’m on a Reynolds kick at the moment, so I’ve added one of his novellas and a collection too.

Abandoned

  • The Message SOLO: An Uncommon Devotional, Katie Peckham
  • For Whom The Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway
  • Use Of Weapons (A Culture Novel Book 3), Iain M. Banks Banks interleaves two related storylines, alternating with chapter. This is really confusing - like a Tarantino film without the contextual clues. I’d like to come back to it when my coming up list gets shorter.
