Bout of Books

On day 5 of Bout Of Books read-a-thon  I realized a bit late A Discovery Of Witches wasn’t YA; so I had to put that one on hold since I made it part of my challenge only reading YA. Oops! So I decided to start reading Eleanor & Park instead:

  • DAY 6 CHALLENGE: Spell It Out

Kimberlyfaye Reads is hosting the Spell It Out challenge for today: a challenge where you have to spell out your name, birth month, zodiac sign etc with the first letters of book titles.

Use the first letter in any book you’ve read or want to read to spell out a word. You can choose first name, initials, your birthday month, or your zodiac sign.
Take a photo, make a graphic or even a list and share your word on your blog, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads.

My full name Yvonne is WAY too difficult to spell out (it’s surprisingly hard to find books starting with Y or V), so I decided to stick with my zodiac sign: PISCES. I didn’t have time for a photo, but here is a list with the titles:

  • Books I’ve read:

P: Pop Goes The Weasel by James Patterson
I: Insurgent by Veronica Roth
S: Shadow And Bone by Leigh Bardugo
C: Carrie by Stephen King
E: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
S: Schindler’s List by Thomas Keneally

  • Books that I own and are waiting to be read:

S: Siege And Storm by Leigh Bardugo
