TBR: The Shell Collector by Hugh Howey
I have a huge TBR (to be read) pile. I’m not exaggerating. I have over 1700 books on there, and I do weed it periodically. This is a problem for me, because I want to read them all. My reading goal for this year is 100 books. I will probably achieve that, or come very close. But, do the math! It will take me 17 years to read all of those books, and only if I don’t add any more to my TBR (unlikely).
I am a huge fan of Hugh Howie’s Wool trilogy. The stories are character driven, and the plot is original and suspenseful. I am also impressed that Wool was originally self-published after Howey won NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). His books are mostly dystopian, but not cheesy or cliché.
