Bout of Books #20 TBR!


I’m looking forward to another great reading month! So far, I’ve completed two books this month. Bout of  Books was one of my first readathons that I participated in, so I always like to do it when I can.  I love Bout of Books because they don’t have reading challenges, so my TBR is whatever I want to read! Luckily, this is my first week off of work and I can join in! Here is my temporary TBR.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th 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 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

  This is just my temporary TBR! Most likely, I’ll get to read 3-4 books. But, I wanted some options! Are you participating?

last day progress:

 

CURRENTLY READING: Every Last World by Tamara Ireland Stone 

I started Every Last Word and I’M ADDICTED. I haven’t felt this addiction since I read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. So, I’m probably going to fly through this. I was only able to read 47 pgs because I had a somewhat busy day.

Overall, I had a great reading week and enjoyed the books I read! Can’t wait for the next Bout of Books, I always look forward to them! Thanks to the Bout of Books crew for hosting this great readathon again! ❤

I’m participating in another readathon that started on Sunday. So, my progress coorelates with Sunday’s reading.

I finished Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List on day 6 and I enjoyed it! Day 7 was very very busy and so I didn’t read any pages!

BOUT OF BOOKS CHALLENGE #6

Once Upon a Chapter — The Comfy Reading Spot

 

We married young(ish) at 22 and inherited a lot of our furniture. I’m finally getting around to replacing some of our furniture. Of course, my reading habit is going to be taken into consideration. I’m thinking an overstuffed chair or a super cozy recliner/rocker. I’m looking for inspiration. What better way than to have my fellow Bout of Book-ers share their favorite spots?!

 

 

My favorite spot will always be the beach, but here is my bed reading spot!

I wasn’t able to complete this challenge because I was very busy!


 

Overall, I completed two books this week. My goal was to read three books so I didn’t meet my goal but I’m very satisfied still!

Happy reading for the last day of Bout of Books #15!

I am going to update my progress for reading, but it’s complicated because Biannual Bibliothon started on Sunday.

However, yesterday I continued reading  Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List. I have the physical book, but i got tired and decided to give the audiobook a try. It’s very good! This book is hilarious, I’m loving it.

I read 76 pgs of Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List that I read.

Total pages I read  from sunday – tuesday is 220 pgs.


 

BOUT OF BOOKS CHALLENGE #3

The Rainbow Book Challenge is hosted by Ranty Runt of Reader.

For the cover challenge, collect books from your bookshelf (physical or virtual) and make yourself a rainbow using the covers. A rainbow is ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet). Then take a photo or arrange images of those books into a rainbow, and either post to twitter (@bookybecksa & #boutofbooks), post to your own blog and leave me a link in the comments below or simply comment below with your response!

For the author challenge, use authors surnames to complete an acrostic poem style rainbow of ROYGBIV – you can only use surnames and no prefixes (eg. Vincent van Gogh could be used for a G, not a V). Any ‘writer’ is acceptable, for example, playwrights, poets and comic book/graphic novel authors)

Once you have completed either challenge (you don’t have to complete both) you are eligible to go into the running for a free book! As long as you have either commented on this blog post or mentioned me on twitter (@bookybecksa) you will go into the running.

 

I will only be attempting the cover challenge. Here is my book rainbow. [ROYGBIV]

BOUT OF BOOKS CHALLENGE #2

Would You Rather is hosted by Writing My Own Fairy Tale .

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?

  • I would hate for my pages to get ruined or stained…So as much as I can NOT stand dog eared pages.. i’m going with that.

Would you rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?

  •  ah… i’d love to meet Rainbow Rowell or Jenny Han… 🙂 

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?

  • oh no .. i don’t know!! I don’t use the library often b/c of occurrences that have happened there. So, i’d say library.

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?

  • these are just getting harder and harder!  I’m going with the favorite couples choice b/c if Cath and Levi broke up…HE WOULD BE MINE!!

Would you rather:
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?

  • I’ve never read the Scarlet Letter and I only got to ch10 of Twilight when I started it long ago…But please don’t make me read it again. So, I’m going with the Scarlet Letter 

 

happy reading! i’ll be back tomorrow with my day 3 progress & challenge. head over to my channel to see my day 3 challenge for the biannual bibliothon!
