Follow Friday - There Are 142 Staircases at Hogwarts

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Words Fueled by Love and A Readers' Sanctuary.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014?

I don't really look forward to new releases. I'm just not able to get myself organized enough to keep track of what books are due to be published in the upcoming months. I also don't really care that much either, as most of my reading tastes tend to be mired in the books of the past. So in the upcoming year, I am most looking forward to reading an assortment of books that were mostly published in the 1950s and 1960s. My first real project (after I clear off my review shelf) is to reread the three novels that make up  The Lord of the Rings, and by doing so complete my read through of the Best Book winners of the International Fantasy Award. After that, I'm going to focus on the Hugo Winning books of the later 1950s through the mid-1960s, reading or rereading A Case of Conscience, Starship Troopers, A Canticle for Liebowitz, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Man in the High Castle, Way Station, and The Wanderer. if I make it through all of those, I'll be happy with my reading year.
