Bout of Books: Master Post (updated)

I signed up on GoodReads

The  Obelisk Gate by NK Jemisin (The Broken Earth Trilogy #2) 87-100% (ebook)

The Lais of Marie de France translated by David Slavitt – pages 219-327 finished! (page numbers on phone) (ebook)

Hyperion by Dan Simmons (Hyperion Cantos, #1) 482 pgs (ebook)

I’m not sure if I will finish:

The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson 37% read

Black Amazon of Mars by Leigh Brackett 15% (LibriVox)   


The Einstein Intersection by Samuel R Delany (audio – hoopla digital with library acct)

Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson (print – public library)


I finished The Einstein Intersection and wrote about it here; I probably won’t write a full review

I started The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell and Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory  

I read Bartleby the Scrivener 

I re-read Aldarion and Erendis from Unfinished Tales by JRR Tolkien (expect a post about this sometime next month when I’ve reviewed the books I finished this week) 

I will have some reviews up soon!

Published by Beth @ Beth's Bookish Thoughts

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.
