BOOKS TO READ

UPDATES
Monday
Number of books I’ve read today: 1
Number of pages I’ve read today: 188
Total number of books I’ve read: 1
Books: I had to finish The Selection before I could move on to my TBR. The final hour was by far the most interesting. I’m 188 pages into The Elite. It’s much faster paced but now there are less girls and the competition is becoming fierce!

Challenge: #FictionalWorldTravelChallenge

I live in New Zealand and most books I read aren’t from here. I selected:
Fairest by Marissa Meyer – The Moom (how far away can you get?)
Un Lun Dun by China Miéville – alternate London
No Place Like Oz – Kansas & Alternate World Emerald City
Clockwork Angel – Old London
The Selection – Futuristic United States

I would probably say this has been my most successful #boutofbooks, in terms of books read. I know that they were mostly novella, but a book is a book! I didn’t manage to visit 2 blogs a day but I was on Twitter at least once a day and I even managed to complete a challenge and visit a couple of blogs. BOOM!

I’m ready to take on the next one. Make sure to write this in your diary!

  1. Wow, congratulations on having a great readathon 🙂 I have the first book of the Selection series on my TBR pile, really must get around to starting it. And thanks for posting the dates of the next BoB too, even though it’s such a long time away. I love a good readathon!

    1. I’ve enjoyed the Selection novels. It’s definitely late teens YA with a little romance here & there. I didn’t know anything about the series and I couldn’t put it down! I put all the novellas on my TBR. Unfortunately now I’m waiting for the next instalment. I hate the waiting!

    1. I wish I had the last few books so I could complete the series. I’ve really enjoyed it, like it’s set post world war 4 and there isn’t the normal futuristic elements. It’s like it’s gone back in time? But I can’t picture America with either Prince Maxon or Aspen Leger. She can be determined but totally lost at the same time. Could probably do without the love triangle!
