A Science Fiction Reading Challenge

So in addition to focusing on reading more C. S. Lewis and more books by women, I also want to tackle this list of the top 100 science fiction books. Of course I have already read 13 of them, so that helps, but that still leaves 87! So there's no way I'll get through them all this year.

The 13 I've read are:
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Speaker for the Dead (Ender's Saga, #2) by Orson Scott Card
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Out of the Silent Planet by C. S. Lewis
1984 by George Orwell
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
