Time Magazine’s 100 Best Fantasy Books of All Time Reading Challenge

Time Magazine recently released its list of the 100 Best Fantasy Books of All Time, which prompted me to think that this would make a great reading challenge. It’s a shame the list didn’t come out sooner, as New Year’s would have been a great target to have it finished by, but there’s just not enough time! My aim is to read and review them all as quickly as possible. I’ve already read a fair few of these before, but I will be re-reading them again for the challenge and to refresh my memory for a decent review write up.

I worked it out and there are twenty titles that I have read completely, and interestingly there are a fair few on the list that I already own that have been sitting on my TBR shelf! For example, I just picked up Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and finished reading it last night, and this is on the list. It means I can get started straight away! I have ordered a few more titles, I’ll probably use my local library for some books, and my friends have also offered to lend me some titles I don’t own.

The other interesting thing about challenging myself this way is there is one title that I own and started reading ages ago that I couldn’t get into. I’ll be intrigued as to how I get on with this book a second time around. Additionally, there is one book on there that I read years ago and really disliked, so I wonder if I will still dislike it on a second read through.
