Bout of Books 13 Challenges

Bout of Books 13

Day 1

The Questions:

1. How do you organize your shelves?
I don’t. Quite simple, books, pens, bills, junk, etc just end up where they lay on my shelves.
2. What is one of your favorite books that’s not in one of your favorite genres?
I really love Room by Emma Donoghue. It’s like a contemporary crime/thriller-ish book.

3. What is the last 5 star book you read?
It was Colleen Hoover’s Confess. I can’t remember if I finished it. I’m waiting for the ebook again from the library. But I know it’s worth every star.

4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon?
I didn’t have a TBR until yesterday when I downloaded a few books, but now I can’t wait to read Dorothy Must Die. The second book in the series has recently been released and I’ve only heard good things.

5. What book do you recommend the most?
For the Bout of Books readathon, I recommend starting off with something short and easy to read. Knock out a book early to keep your motivated. Then try a longer novel, then for the between moments, graphic novels. I want to read the Saga graphic novel series. That’s my recommendation.

Day 2

Fictional Character Battle!
Check out the challenge here.

I selected Rush Finlay versus Dean Holder. You’ll have to check out the link to see who I picked as Winner.

Day 3

Haiku on the book I’m reading. Check out the challenge here.

Young Love. I Kiss Him.
He Kills for Father. I flee.
Vanish into Paint.

Book Title: Kiss, Kill, Vanish. I’ve read less than 100 pages. But that is what I can come up with so far.

Day 4

A Classic in 100 years. Check out the challenge here

I select The Fault In Our Stars.
Reason 1: It’s Young Adult. This genre has blown up over the past decade, thanks to series like Harry Potter. I consider HP a classic already!
Reason 2: It’s loved as a book and as a movie. TFIOS has won a bunch of awards, even a goodreads choice in 2012. It’s such a moving, heartbreaking & timeless story (even after a cure is discovered for cancer).

Day 5

  1. Thanks for participating in the Modern to Classics challenge, I haven’t read TFiOS but so many people rave about it – there has to be something there. I agree with you that the best of this current YA trend will be considered classics – I just wonder which ones will make the cut – I have a suspicion that TFioS will stand above many others tho! Enjoy the rest of the readathon.

Go on! Share your secrets with me.
