Bout of Books Master Post for Updates

Bout of Books

Day 5 Update:

I got to 48% of From a Distant Star. Didn't get much reading done at all.

Day 4 Update:

I finished Those Girls yesterday and read about 25% of another one. Today begins #CrushYourTBR so I'll be doubling up on my read-a-thons. Fun! Hope everyone else is enjoying their BoB reading time.

Day 3 Update:

I read 59% of Those Girls by Lauren Saft yesterday. 

Day 2 Update:

We had a fun afternoon with friends so I didn't get much reading done. Spent part of the evening trying to decide on a new Kindle book to read. I dipped in and out of several before giving up and going to sleep.

Day 1 Update:

I finished the last of Pines, read Red at Night, a novella by Katie McGarry, read 2 chapters of Huckleberry Finn for my online class, and read 30 pages of Rush, and completed the day's mini challenge. Not bad! I missed the Twitter chat because the boys and I were watching The Avengers.I was amazed at the number of people signed up this time exciting!

Intro Post:

Today is day 1 of Bout of Books 13.0! Excited to get some extra reading done this week. I'll be updating every day starting tomorrow.

Today we have a mini-challenge from Writing My Own Fairy Tale to answer the following bookish questions:

1. How do you organize your shelves? Right now they are separated by fiction and non-fiction and I have a table that is covered in stacks. My goal for the weekend is to move my bookcases into another room and put them by color. I love the rainbow shelves that others have!
2. What is one of your favorite book that’s not in one of your favorite genres? I don't read romance anymore except for books by Katie McGarry. In Pushing the Limits she made me swoon AND root for a girl named Echo. Echo? I didn't think it possible.
3. What is the last 5 star book you read? The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I can't even. Review coming soon.
4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon? Probably Ruth by Eve Silver. I won it from Epic Reads during a Tea Time forever ago. And I'm also looking forward to finishing The Pines which I'm currently reading so that I can watch Wayward Pines on Thursday. M. Night Shyamalan is going to do amazing things with this trilogy I am sure.
5. What book do you recommend the most? Hard to say but Shadow and Bone maybe? I fangirl on that one a ton.

Happy Bout of Books, everyone!


  1. I loved listening to the unabridged audio version of The Fault In Our Stars last year. I loved it!! It had me crying in parts.

    Happy reading to you and good luck with your reading goals!

    1. I don't know if I could handle listening to it! It was so very good though. Happy reading to you too!


Comments make my book nerd heart so very happy. Thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to interact with me. I love to talk books with other bookish people!
