Winter TBR ~ AKA 2019 Discworld TBR

Since I plan on reading a lot of Discworld books in 2019, I thought it was a good idea to review which ones I’m most interested in reading. (I will be doing a mostly chronological-by-publication-order read-through, but I’m allowing for exceptions whenever I feel like it.)

  1. Equal Rites (I’ll be starting with this one on January 1)
  2. Hogfather (I’ll be reading this one around Christmas 2019 regardless of where I am in the series at that point — including saving it for the holiday season if I get to it earlier in the year)
  3. Soul Music (having seen the TV adaptation of this book I am really excited to read this one and I’m not sure I’ll be able to wait until I officially get to it chronologically)
  4. Reaper Man
  5. Mort
  6. Night Watch
  7. The Wee Free Men (I’m also really excited to get to the Tiffany Aching books, but since this is Discworld #30 by publication order I will probably read this book well in advance of where it falls in order)
  8. A Hat Full of Sky
  9. Making Money
  10. Carpe Jugulum (I’ve never read Pratchett’s take on vampires…)

Death is my favorite character in the series so far, so I’m naturally most interested in reading stories where he features. I really enjoyed watching the movie version of Hogfather as well, so while I haven’t read Susan’s books yet I’m hoping I will enjoy them. I also am looking forward to trying the Tiffany Aching books, when I get there (or decide to skip ahead to them). And I enjoyed reading Going Postal, so I’m hopeful that I will enjoy Moist von Lipwig’s return in Making Money.

Have you read much Pratchett? Do you have any favorites that I should look out for?

  1. Wow, what a great list! I love the Discworld series and agree that Death (or DEATH, if he’s the one talking!) is a very likeable character. Really enjoyed Mort. The Hogfather is always a great read for this time of year.

    1. Mort may have been the first Discworld book I ever read, so it has a soft spot in my memory. I haven’t read it in ages though, so I’m due to a re-read!

    1. The thing about the Discworld series I like the best is that there are lots of different story-lines so you can pick and choose which ones you want to read. I hope you find some you like!

    1. LOL! Thanks! While I have DNF’d some books this year (7 I think) I haven’t done quite enough to completely fill a TTT list of 10. Still, that’s something to keep in mind for a future list… 😀

    1. From what I’ve read (both books in the series and people writing about them) it seems you can start pretty much anywhere you like. I’d say if you’re interested in reading any Discworld, find a plot / character / book title that interests you and start there. I know there’s a YA sub-series too (Tiffany Aching books) so that might be an easier way to get started. (Partly because they are more recent works and so his writing had improved by the time the first YA Discworld was published.)

    1. Thanks! I’m hoping to! I’ve really enjoyed the non-Rincewind books I’ve read a lot, and I’m hoping that I’ll like Rincewind in later books where the Discworld is more established and Pratchett’s writing style had developed more.
