Bout of Books 15.0 | Daily Updates

BOB 15 - Jan 2016


Finish books I’ve started: Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (audio) & Playlist for the Dead

To Be Read: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between

That’s all I’ve got so far!

Day One – Monday

My biggest excuse is I’m packing up my house. It’s taking longer than I expected. Needs to be sorted by the end of this week.

I finished the Harry audio & I read all of Hello, Goodbye &. Everything In Between!

Page count: 80 + 248

Day Two – Tuesday

I missed the Chat! I had put it in my calendar & didn’t even hear the alerts. Reading has been slow. I finished Playlist for the Dead. Not sure what I’m gonna read tomorrow.

Challenge: Would you rather?

Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers? Dog ears. This question makes me cringe!

Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice? Character, because authors are people and there is already potential to meet them. Characters are fictitious, so would be amazeballs to meet one. Don’t ask me who, I don’t know.

Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again? Hands down Bookstore. I love the library.

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? Death seems a little harsh… so I’m gonna say Break up. Could you imagine if Edward really broke up with Bella?

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. I really want to, it’s on my TBR. I’ve read Twilight, so I guess that will be my pick.

Page count: 90, brings total to 418.

Day Three – Wednesday

Nothing to report. I managed to pack a box today. So it wasn’t totally uneventful.


Day Four – Thursday

I started reading The Sister Pact, which was a little depressing. Allie feels like she has been left behind by her sister Leah, who had overdosed and died… Not sure if I like the story, but I’m willing to stick it out and see where the end takes me.

Page count: 20, brings total to 438.


Day Five – Friday

I started Hold Me Closer:The Tiny Cooper Story. I’m finding hard to get into because its a musical novel. I would prefer to listen to how Tiny wants the lyrics sung, rather than guessing how they’d sing them. Is this out on audio?

Page count: 28, brings total to 466.

Day Six – Saturday

I read Pale Kings & Princes from the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy series. Will it’s a short and ticks the READ box, I’m not sure if I can keep up with the story. There are sooo many spin-offs! The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, Bane Chronicles, Shadowhunter Academy and now The Dark Artifices… Maybe I can wait until all the books have been published before continuing.

Page count: 40, not very good… but brings the total to 506.

Day Seven – Sunday

I read an entire book today, but I feel it makes up for my lack of effort throughout the week.

I knew On The Fence would be good. I like Kasie west’s writing. It’s easy to follow. The story feels real. Like I can picture all of the events and characters. Although the very start, Charlie speeding, I don’t think matched the rest of her character.

Page count: 296, brings the total to 802. I’ve still got a couple hours left… so will see if I can get another few pages in before I succumb to sleep.
