#BoutOfBooks 19.0 – Day 5 Update

The first five days of Bout Of Books 19.0 have literally flown by! I’ve already made more progress than I hoped for and I’m close to meeting my goals (I just need to read 150 pages both last days and that’s it): I finished another book yesterday (Liar) and I decided to continue with Aurabel even though the worldbuilding is quite confusing. I ended up not sticking to my original TBR at all, but I kind of had already expected that to happen haha.

# Pages read today: 205 (Liar) + 20 (Aurabel)
# Total pages read: 1.441
# Books continued: Aurabel by Laura Dockrill // Liar by K.L. Slater

BOUT OF BOOKS 19.0 ON INSTAGRAM

This is my first time participating the Bout Of Books readathon with both an Instagram and Twitter account, so I might have gone a little crazy haha. I love love bookstagram and in between reading I’ve managed to post five bookish photos so far. And here they are: *drumroll*

#BoutOfBooks 19.0 – Day 4 Update

Bout Of Books 19.0 day four might just have been the slowest reading day yet, but I did manage to finish another title and that brings the number of finished books to three. Not that bad at all! I also wrote three book reviews last night, so that explain why I had less time to read as well. I’ve now completed my first goal of this readathon of reading and reviewing three books! 😀 And I’m hoping to finish Liar by the end of today…

#BoutOfBooks 19.0 – Day 3 Update

I wasn’t really feeling all that well during most of Bout Of Books 19.0 day three, so I didn’t get as much reading done as the previous two days… I’m still happy with the progress though and even managed to join for yesterday’s challenge as well. Looks like I will be finishing book number 3 today!

#BoutOfBooks 19.0 – Day 2 Update + Day 3 Challenge

Bout Of Books 19.0 day two is done and dusted, and I managed to finish Enchanters like suspected. I also started Aurabel, but I had to put it on hold because I had a really hard time making sense of the worldbuilding. I picked up Room instead and it worked: I literally flew through the pages and finished it in less than a day! I’m glad I finally picked up my copy, it was SO good.

DAY 2: TUESDAY MAY 9th 2017

# Pages read today: 124 (Enchanters) + 15 (Aurabel) + 321 (Room)
# Total pages read: 808

#BoutOfBooks 19.0 – Day 1 Update & Day 2 Challenge

Bout Of Books 19.0 day one is already over! I’m so excited to be joining this readathon again; it’s been too long since last time. I had a great time yesterday and managed to go through a lot of my current read Enchanters. I had read 20% already on Sunday, so I will be counting the pages from that mark. With 590 pages, there’s still plenty book left to count anyway haha. I even managed to do day one challenge (describe yourself in six words) on Twitter and joined the Twitter chat as well. Yay for finally having signed up for Twitter; it was a lot of fun! 😀

You can still sign up until tomorrow if you are interested in joining! Just visit the Bout Of Books blog and follow the instructions; it’s easy!

DAY 1: MONDAY MAY 8th 2017

# Pages read today: 348
# Total pages read: 348
# Book continued: Enchanters by K.F. Bradshaw

 

DAY 2 CHALLENGE: NOT A FONT

Share a book cover where illustrations are part of the typography of the title. Looking at the book cover, you know the letters cannot be recreated by simply downloading a font.

Today’s challenge was actually really easy because I remembered this cover straight away of an ARC I read a little over two weeks ago. This Is Really Happening by Erin Chack, a well written coming of age memoir. (4/5 stars) full review here.

2017 (Netgalley) ARCs: The Complete List

I signed up for the 2017 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge hosted by Bookish Things & More here, and thought it would be easier to have a different post with all the ARCs I will be reading this year together. (This includes other ARCs that won’t count for the challenge; those are marked in orange while the Netgalley ARCs are marked in green). Hopefully it will be an easier way to keep track of all those lovely ARCs that have been sent to me this year!  ❤
