Bout of Books 17 - August 22 - 28

Bout of Books

It's time for Bout of Books 17! It's just the thing to help me recover from Worldcon 74! So awesome, but so tiring, more on that in another post! I'm so glad I have this read-a-thon to ease me down from that amazing event back into real life again, so it isn't quite a full stop back into the everyday. Even as an introvert it's a little jarring to go from super event to normal work, like nothing really happened. Oh but things did happen! I met PEOPLE, and I even TALKED to them! *gasp* (like 20+ authors, seriously) but again, that's for another post! Now we're going to have a big old reading party for a week, want to join me?

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

TBR Pile (subject to change without notice, even to me!):



  1. envious you went to worldcon! When it was in Chicago I wasn't able to go...

    You got some great books on your list. I decided not to make a TBR list this year. I'm starting with the books I was in the middle of when the RaT started and going from there.

    1. Most of these are ones I was in the middle of, so we'll see how far I get!

      WorldCon was amazing, I had great author encounters, went to panels and readings, spent too much money! I'm trying to work on a post about it.

  2. I'd like to read The Bell Jar. How was it?

  3. Looks like you did pretty well. I hope you liked your reads. My books changed too over the week, which always seems to happen. :)
