So, Bout of Books 11 is rolling around. It takes place in approximately 2 weeks. Though I partook in Bout of Books 10, I wasn’t great about updates, challenges, or staying up to date with others’ reading goals. I’m hoping to do much better this round.
So, without much further ado, here is my Bout of Books 11 (rough) TBR:
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gaabriel Garcia Marquez I have wanted to read this for a long time. It’s a family story from Marquez, one of the most prominent magical realism authors. Marquez passed away a few months ago, so I think I’ll take the opportunity. If I don’t read it earlier.
Hyperion by Dan Simmons This is one of my S.O.’s favorite books, and it’s about time I’ve read it. Otherwise, I feel like I’ll never know what he’s talking about or why he likes the books he likes. The Goodreads Reading Buddies group has also been making its way through Simmons’ quartet.
Deathless by Cat M. Valente This one has been on my TBR forever and I’m itching for some Valente. This one is supposed to be a Russian fairy-tale retelling.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath Can you talk feminism or women’s lit without some Plath?
