Bout of Books Check In


Bout of Books is nearly over.

Here’s what I’ve read so far:

I Imogen and I were discussing the other day that Native Americans, their work and legacy is basically invisible to anyone outside the US. I learned a lot about the USA from this book. Please read it.

I love Scalzi. This book comes after Lock In and it was so good. I love Leslie Vann.

Borne was okay? There was a bunch of stuff revealed in the last 20 pages that I would have enjoyed more seeing actually played out on the page.

I’ve just started this one and I am hooked! Set in China in the near future, the one child policy and preference for boys has resulted in women being the ones with the marital and reproductive power, but homosexuality is a crime. Looking forward to seeing how the story plays out.

What have you been reading?

Bout of Books!


Ok bit random, but one of my BRI mates has put me onto the Bout of Books.

Bout of Books is a week long readathon which is pretty chill (which is good as I don’t get a lot of reading done in the week).

I have no idea how much I will get through, but all my holds for the Arthur C Clarke awards came in from my local library, plus the new Scalzi, so here’s a photo of them!
