What’s Your Choice for World Book Day ’17?

This is my physical TBR pile going into March. If you had to choose 1 book to read next, what would it be? Please post your answer in the comments section below:)

(Adam Roberts’ Adam Robots and Brian Aldiss’s The Secret of this Book are short story collections.)

    • Same here. Alan Garner is said to write beautifully about landscape and myth. His name kept popping up over the last month so I thought it was about time I read something by him. A couple of his later works are very highly rated.

      • ‘Greybeard’ is a favorite of mine. The characters have a great deal of depth. The main characters are a married couple that are the most realistic portrayal of two people who have known each other for a very long time I have read. On the other hand I couldn’t finish ‘Hothouse’.

  1. Hi

    Of the books in your pile I would suggest The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, I read it many years ago and I loved it’s use of myth and magic. It is the one book in your pile I have read so I cannot speak to the others, but The Weirdstone of Brisingamen is a book I remember quite fondly.

    • Thank you for your comment, Guy. It’s a book I was aware of in my childhood but never got around to reading. I’ve visited Alderley Edge, a beautiful place which I’ve heard is used in the book, so it will be very interesting to read it. Have you read anything else by Alan Garner?


    • Yes, those two look really good. That Brian Aldiss is the one I picked up in Manchester a while back. I think you read the first story, I still haven’t got around to it. Don’t think I can face the GRRM doorstep ‘A Storm of Swords’, although it’s said to be one of the best in the series.
