Journal GameboyRMH's Journal: My Sci-Fi reading list 4

So the list of sci-fi books I plan to read has been building up, because recently I just haven't had the time. I usually just blow through books when I'm on vacation but otherwise can't get much reading done, that's why I still haven't finished proofreading mcgrew's latest Paxil Diaries compilation (sorry!). I figured I better write them down before I forget them (which is something I can do very easily) and why not share the list while I'm at it?

So here they are in no particular order:

REAMDE by Neal Stephenson (EDIT: Heard too many bad reviews calling it a "more drawn out Anathem" rather than the "return of Snow Crash" we were led to expect)

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Daemon & Freedom by Daniel Suarez (better finish them before the movie comes out)

Lacuna: Demons of the Void by David Adams (Slashdotter-written & available DRM-free)

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein (I know, not having read this is terrible for my geek cred)

The Ship who Sang by Anne McCaffrey (only heard of this one in the thread on her dad is a big McCaffrey fan but it's hard for me to get into fantasy/soft sci-fi mixes)

Second Cousins by Douglas Roberts (also Slashdotter-written & available DRM-free)

Fallen Dragon by Peter Hamilton

Rx by Robert Brockway (available DRM-free)

Year Zero by Rob Reid
