Fantasy Bucket List (Sci-Fi, Epic and Action)

My personal hardback section of fantasy fiction.
My personal hardback section of fantasy fiction.

This is a genre I love delving into. Call it being mindless to the reality that surrounds us or a subconscious need for adventure but the world of the unknown plays a huge role in my world. And for humans to put pen to paper and create epic new continents, creatures and characters is something of a miracle.

I don’t care what you say, IMAGINATION is magic. (This is true in both beautiful and horrific ways.)

Here goes: (AN: If I want to read a series I simply list the first book.)

  1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  2. Enders Game by Orson Scott Card
  3. Leviathan Wakes by James. S. A. Corey
  4. The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
  5. Golden Son by Pierce Brown (Release date in 2015)
  6. Emperor: The Gates of Rome by Conn Iggulden
  7. Wolf of the Plains by Conn Iggulden
  8. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
  9. Wool by Hugh Howey
  10. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
  11. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
  12. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
  13. The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman
  14. The Time Machine by HG Wells

Poetry and Play Bucket List

A section of my growing personal poetry collection.
A section of my growing personal poetry collection.

The thing with my reading of poetry is that I do not have fixed readings. My ideal poetry book is a sickly thin paperback written (and at time self published) by unrecognisable poets and play writes. Those slim volumes that amount to no mass attention, yet often speak is the most brilliant of ways to me. I find that they often give the term hidden gem a whole world of tangible meaning.

However, until I find more “gems”, here are a list of poems and plays I look forward to reading one day…

  1. Howl by Allen Ginsberg
  2. The Complete Collected Poems by Maya Angelou
  3. Beowulf: A New Translation by Seamus Heaney
  4. Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth
  5. Mojo by Jez Butterworth
  6. The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder
  7. The History Boys by Alan Bennet
  8. The Last Night of the Earth Poems by Charles Bukowski
  9. Cuckoo Calling: A Book of Verse for Youthful People by E.V.Rieu
  10. The Flattered Flying Fish and Other Poems by E.V.Rieu
  11. Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav
  12. The Prophet by Khalil Gibran
  13. Collected Poems by Sylvia Plath

And I cannot express how desperately I want to own, hold and devour Beat Poets by Carmela Cuirara.
